I read this as a teenager, and then fell in love with the movie. This is a wildly compelling story about a family on the Oregon coast, the Stampers, who fight against a bitter strike that rages through their small lumber town along the Oregon coast.

"The Never Ending Story", Michael Ende - After years of requesting it for Christmas, my mum finally tracked down for me the version of this book that I so coveted.
