The Last Resort, is the story of a Manhattan attorney who, his career and marriage in turmoil, drives desperately away from all he knows to an out-of-season resort on Long Island. As he struggles to put his life back together, he meets a surfer, a fisherman, and a Native American woman fighting to preserve ancestral land threatened with development, a fight that eventually endangers her life. The tension between past and present comes alive as he finds new meaning in life through the natural world and social justice for a long-oppressed race of people.
This is a story for our times, as the need to understand our connection to nature and social justice for all Americans has become so urgent.
