In To Build a Ship, Don Berry explores the extent to which a man can betray himself and his morality for a dream or an obsession. It's the story of a handful of settlers who take up land in the fertile Tillamook Bay Valley in the early 1850s - defiant dreamers battling the wilderness. With impenetrable mountains at their backs and the open sea as their sole road to trade, they are suddenly isolated from the outside world when the only captain willing to enter their harbor dies. With the survival of their new settlement threatened, they decide to build their own schooner.At first the challenge brings out the best in the men, but soon the tensions inherent in this monumental task engulf them. Obstacles accumulate and complications mount: a death, a murder trial, trouble with restive Indians, and finally a travesty of justice. Excitement, shock, and drama mark this story of men pushed to the point of madness as they see the Morning Star of Tillamook slowly take shape on the wild Pacific shore.

I was looking for traditional historical fiction with Don Berry's books. But they were significantly different than Michener, Clavell, et al. To Build A Ship is loosely related to his other Oregon books - Moontrap and Trask. I was disappointed with the history part of the book(s). But the three are great novels on their own. I was very impressed with the way Berry captures the inner feelings of the protagonists as they made their own way in the wild country of Oregon. Very surprisingly poignant insights in their thinking about their lives and their challenges.

Read all four of Don Berry's books years ago when first published and just enjoyed re reading them.
Scoreboard Bleeding
This is a beautifully written and intriguing tale of pioneer life on the coast of Oregon and of the consequences of obsession. The author employed an unconventional literary device, the unsympathetic first-person narrator, and packed a lot of atmosphere, history, drama, and humor into this short novel. I enjoyed it very much.

OSU Press should be commended for reissuing Don Berry's excellent works. I only wish that more care was taken in proofreading. The publisher committed too many typographical errors to not go "unpunished", for which I deduct one star.
