Book Reviews 207 Davis Country: H. L. Davis's Northwest. Edited by Brian Booth and Glen A. Love. Corvallis: Oregon State University Press, 2009. 320 pages, $22.95. Reviewed by Paul Crumbley Utah State University, Logan If you do not already know who H. L. Davis is, you can easily correct that oversight by reading Davis Country, the wonderful new collection of his work edited by Brian Booth and Glen A. Love. I grew up in Oregon, where most of Davis's writing is set, and even though I majored in English and later completed a graduate degree at Oregon universities, I still didn't know who he was. It is possible that his relative obscurity is the result of his prickly personality; after all, he refused to go to New York to receive the Pulitzer Prize in 1936, and there is a story that he wouldn't open the door for a New York editor who tracked him to his home in the Napa Valley. What most delighted me was discovering just how good Davis is--how fully he merits Booth and Love's assertion that "he may be the greatest Northwest writer" (9). Had I done my homework, I wouldn't have been so
