Indianapolis, IN, July 28, 2009 --( Chris Glode's newest book tells the story of loyalty, love, and family in a small Oregon logging town - The Woodsmen is released by author Chris Glode, published by Dog Ear Publishing.

Meet Robert and Billy McDonough, an aging father and his grown son who live together in a small Oregon logging town. Earlier in the year, Robert buried his youngest son after a violent logging accident and later his own wife when she succumbed to cancer. He's a tough man who battles his demons with drink and work. Billy works for his father and in his case the apple does not fall far from the tree. The two spend their days working as loggers and their nights in the local bar smoking and drinking. Things change quickly for Billy when a girl from his past named Annie comes back to town to stay with her mother. Annie, now a lawyer in Seattle, finds everything in Billy that she couldn't find in the fiancé she's running from. She quickly finds herself in love and despite being back in the dismal town of her childhood, she feels alive again like she's never felt before.

The Woodsmen, by author Chris Glode, is much more than a love story, it's also the story of loyalty and family set against the backdrop of a logging tradition and a dying way of life. This novel will pull you in as effortlessly as it breaks your heart.
