"Oregon Detour was first published in 1930, the first novel of a young Northwest journalist who became one of the region's best-known writers. Its new realist depiction of Weston, Oregon -- thinly disguised as "Creston" -- shocked some Weston residents and created a controversy that still lingers today. Nard Jones portrays the people of this small town in eastern Oregon wheat country with directness and compassion -- their dreams, toil, passions, and tragedies." -- Oregon State University website

The island : a novel by Nard Jones( Book )

2 editions published in 1948 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A mirroring of two decades in Seattle in the lives of Jack Madcliff, his first wife, Aileen, his second wife, Carol, of Lou Benedict who learned he loved Carol too late, and of Monske, who know he hated Madoliff early. With the '20's and '30's marking their conditioning, and the '40's bringing them up short with the reality of war, and teaching them that the enemy was not only the Jap and the German, but themselves in their insecurity and their little hells of neuroses, the tension between the three men grows as they remember Aileen's death (suicide or accident?) at the beginning of the war, and his marriage to Carol who wanted to be wanted. Madoliff is almost killed by Benedict on a mission to Kiska and Kodiak for Intelligence, after they have sweated through the 'shore war' behind desks, and with their release from the Service, the end to personal strife comes with Madoliff's death in Atlantic City ... For this story of fears facing fears, this offers the pulse and pattern of Seattle as a West Coast city, plagued on both her borders, by the government at home, and the Japanese nearing her shores, a tension reflected through all the wartime years in all her inhabitants. A novel of more than regional appeal, this offers well defined clashes of temperament and psychology"--Kirkus Reviews
