Publisher's summary

It was 1970 in a defeated Rhode Island fishing town. Vietnam and Nixon dominated the national news. Both the near and distant future looked bleak.

But they were five inseparable high school friends with something incredible in common: an unwavering resolve to look after each other no matter what hell life threw at them. And they were on a mission.

The plan was simple: Go off the grid before they turned 18 to avoid the draft. They’d sell some grass, stack some cash, then head west and start a commune. What could possibly go wrong?

Oregon is an emotionally charged new Audible Original short thriller from Audie Award-winning and internationally best-selling author Don Winslow. Masterfully performed by four-time Academy Award nominee Ed Harris, it delivers an audio experience that will stay with you long after it’s over. Listen now.

Teens trapped in futility

From the beginning, there is a forecast of futility, but the hopes of escape from the dire circumstances are going to come to nothing. Winslow adroitly encapsulates a mood of the era into the circumstances and actions of a small group of friends and then describes how the friendship and their shared dream is not enough to make it through.
