The Temple Grove means different things to differnet people. High up in the rain drenched Olympic Penninsula, it's a grove of trees as tall as skyscrapers and as old as nations. And until now it's been off limits to logging. To Paul Granger the Temple Grove is a sanctuary that he escapes to whenever he can, and a sanctuary he is duty bound to protect. To Trace, Paul's mother, the Temple Grove represents the unbroken lineage of her Makah Indian ancestry. To Bill Newton, the Temple Grove is the raw material for hardwood floors, boats, tables and toothpaste. It's also his livelihood. Jennifer Kemp of Between the Cover speaks with Scott Elliot, author of the novel Temple Grove.
