Kurzbeschreibung

One mistake can ruin a life. One mistake can transform it.

A government forestry camp set deep in the mountainous forests of the Pacific Northwest might not seem the likely place to find redemption, but in 1935, Park Hardesty hopes for just that.

Blaming himself for the fiery accident that caused his brother’s disfigurement and the death of the bootlegging woman he loved, planting trees, building bridges and mentoring tough, homesick New Jersey boys brings him both penitence and the renewal of his own self-worth. When he wins the love of Kate Alford, a local naturalist who envisions joining the Forest Service, which allows only men, he also captures the ire of a camp officer who refuses to let her go. Just when he is ready to seek his brother’s forgiveness, he is falsely accused of rape. Every aspect of his life he has tried to rebuild is put in jeopardy. In the end, the only way he can defend himself is to tell the truth about his brother, but he risks being kicked out of the camp. Worse, he could lose Kate’s love forever.

HASH(0x9a186870) von 5 Sternen Finding redemption in the forest: New Deal tree soldiers in the Pacific Northwest 7. Dezember 2010
Von Mexall - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Historian and writer J. L. Oakley has crafted a compelling story set in Western Washington during the Depression. Underfed youths escaping the poverty of Eastern cities for a job with the Civilian Conservation Corps face an unfamiliar landscape and sometimes hostile locals. Under the leadership of Park Hardesty, "Joisey Squad" eventually finds respect and satisfaction in performing hard and sometimes dangerous work. Park is seeking a more personal redemption, and his search leads him to the love of his life.

Oakley creates the period with authentic details, like the slang the Corpsmen use, but her exacting research -- she interviewed several surviving CCCers -- does not get in the way of a rousing tale with well-developed characters.

HASH(0x99f91e1c) von 5 Sternen Enjoyable read 29. Januar 2011
Von Monica W. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This was a great book that I really enjoyed reading. I'm originally from the Pacific Northwest, and it brought back memories of living there, and visiting my grandparents who lived in the middle of twenty acres of woods. You could almost smell the pine when reading.
The characters were interesting, and I liked that even though this story was in the past, there was a strong female character who really knows what she wants in life.
A quick and enjoyable read and I hope to read other books by this author.

HASH(0x9a188a5c) von 5 Sternen Tree Soldier: Love and Brawling in Depression-era NW 24. Dezember 2010
Von L.M. Archer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
"Tree Soldier " proves one CAN judge a book by its' cover! This historical novel unfolds around Park Hardesty, an east-coast college drop-out haunted by his past, who works his way to the Depression-era Civilian Conservation Corp (CCC) camps of the Pacific NW forests. Here, through a hair-raising series of 'switchbacks' - both literal and emotional, Park finds love, acceptance, and redemption among his fellow 'tree soldiers'. Kudos to author J.L. Oakley for a masterfully wrought masterpiece that both instructs and inspires.

HASH(0x9a186804) von 5 Sternen Grand Prize Winner of CBR Blue Ribbon Awards Novels 5. September 2012
Von Chanticleer Book Reviews - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
In this action-packed, emotionally charged historical novel titled "Tree Soldier," J.L. Oakley takes us back to the era of the Great Depression. With millions of Americans unemployed, President Franklin D. Roosevelt devised a New Deal work relief program called the Civilian Conservation Corps.

Some three million unmarried young men went to work in CCC camps across America--building roads and bridges, establishing flood control, and replanting depleted forests. Of the men's $30 monthly paychecks, $25 was sent to help their desperately poor families.

Oakley skillfully weaves this history into a suspense building story of love, forgiveness, and redemption. The story commences with the arrival in 1935 of a new squad of 'Tree Soldiers' at Camp Kulshan, a CCC forestry camp in the rugged North Cascades, near the little village of Frazier, Washington.

While most of the new recruits are sort of rough teenagers from urban New Jersey and New York, our protagonist is a college student who left school and his farm home in eastern Pennsylvania to join up. The strong and handsome John Parker Hardesty has more than a paycheck on his mind, however. The pensive young man, who sometimes seeks solitude in the forest, is trying to escape his nightmare memories of two tragic events in his life. His fellow recruits nonetheless respect the polite, clean-cut, Park who can also hold his own in the physically competitive proving ground environment of camp life. Many of the new recruits seek out his company, especially a wiry, 18-year-old Italian kid named Mario Spinelli, who takes the upper bunk above Park. Before long Park becomes the squad's "straw boss."

Camp Kulshan is no fun summer camp. The physical training is tough, camp chores are boring, and not all the Tree Soldiers are easy to get along with. The boys of "Joisey Squad" (from the Jersey accents of several) are dubbed "foreigners" and suffer some rough hazing. However, camp life is not all work and no play. The people of Frazier appreciate the camp's contribution to the community and in friendship arrange baseball games and picnics. The Tree Soldiers reciprocate with a dance in the mess hall. Boys meet girls, sparking romance but also jealousy. Park is drawn to the dance floor by a pretty, auburn-haired young woman, Kate Alford. He breaks in on an arrogant, self-serving camp officer, David Callister, who has his eyes possessively on Kate. As Park takes Kate in his arms, Callister stalks off the floor.

As the story's pace increases, so does the emotion it evokes. Suspense builds as reputations are undermined, treachery and deceit threatens lives on the verge of redemption while storms brew and forest fires erupt. Oakley's characters come to life as their respective roles are defined as the drama of trials and tests of will and determination build. Love blossoms, but is not without thorns. Friendships are solidified, and trust and support are developed in the face of duplicity and enmity. In the final pages of this compelling book, Oakley introduces one more human trait, one she saw fit to include in its title--forgiveness.

J.L. Oakley's "Tree Soldier" will draw you in and keep you turning the pages. "Tree Soldier" won Chanticleer Book Reviews Blue Ribbon Award of Grand Prize in our Published Novels Contest 2012 earning it a coveted CBR Star.
