Jean Mendoza's visit to La Push and Forks
Comment: I wonder if any of these details made it into the books or movies. For instance, was there any mention of logging, a primary industry in the area? Was there a single mention of a tree stump?
I'm guessing not. I'm guessing the forests were all dark, mysterious, and primeval. As befits a romantic fantasy unrelated to the reality of the Quileute Nation.
