East of the Mountains by David Guterson

East of the MountainsAuthor wrote Snow Falling on Cedars which I have yet to read.

The book tells the story of a man in his late 70s who is dying of colon cancer and thinks he wants to protect his family from the indignity of this disease, so he plans to go back to Eastern Washington where he was born and spare his family from this ordeal. Along the way he meets several people who give him different prospects on living. Good read ,lots of accurate depictions of Eastern Washington and apple picking.
