Renée Thompson’s second novel, THE PLUME HUNTER (Torrey House Press, December 2011) is a moving story of conflict, friendship, and love.

PLUME follows the life of Fin McFaddin, a late-nineteenth century Oregon outdoorsman who takes to plume hunting — killing birds to collect feathers for women’s hats — to support his widowed mother. In 1885, more than five million birds were killed in the United States for the millinery industry, prompting the formation of the Audubon Society. The novel brings to life an era of our country’s natural history seldom explored in fiction, and follows Fin’s relationships with his lifelong friends as they struggle to adapt to society’s changing mores.
