  The girl marries a white man against her father’s wishes and moves to a town in pre-state California. They have children. Mexico becomes a state and the Civil War begins. Both the husband and his friend fight in the Civil War and (I think) the ex-slaves loses an arm but they both return. The husband’s old mistress plays a role in the book.   A study of whale deaths showed that the biggest killer was entanglement in fishing gear. A paper led by Moore’s graduate student Julie van der Hoop and published this month in Conservation Biology examined all of the 1, documented deaths and serious injuries that occurred between and in eight large whale species in the northwest.
