Would it be a fledging family business? A statue symbolizing a conquest? Moral values and religious beliefs?</p><p>Jonathan Evison’s <i>West of Here</i> is a novel of the western expansion. It juxtaposes the legacy of the past with the drama of the present in the fictional town of Port Bonita, on Washington state’s Pacific coast.
