Paul Watkins is receiving national acclaim for his razor-sharp prose. He is often compared to legendary writers like Ernest Hemingway and Jack London.

Archangel takes the listener deep into the woods of Maine, where two determined men clash over acres of valuable trees. Noah Mackenzie, an ambitious businessman, is racing against the clock to log thousands of acres of ancient forest before new legislation can stop him. Reclusive environmentalist Adam Gabriel is willing to give his life to protect those majestic pines. As profits and preservation collide, the conflict brews a devastating combination of natural catastrophe and social violence.

Paul Watkins’ riveting novel turns a towering northern landscape into an ideological battlefield that is compelling and absolutely unforgettable. Watkins’ powerful work has made him one of the best-reviewed new writers on the current American literary scene.
