Hardcover: 476 pages
By Mike O'Sullivan
Publisher: Riverbend Publishing;
First edition (June 10, 2009)
A book by first-time novelist William Pack, called The Bottom of the Sky,
takes readers from rural Montana to the financial center of Wall Street and high-tech hub of Silicon Valley. The writer's own journey had been just as interesting.
The Bottom of the Sky
follows the different paths of a brother and sister. Author William Pack says the book is fiction, inspired by elements from his own life.
"Certainly the venues are autobiographical," said William Pack. "The primary protagonists are born and raised in rural Montana, particular outside of Roundup, Montana, in abject poverty. So from that standpoint, that is where my life started as well."
