Product description


"A warm, introspective read, filled with lush imagery of beautiful natural wonders."--James A. Cox, Midwest Book Review--James A. Cox "Midwest Book Review" (6/19/2007 12:00:00 AM)

"Bass is known primarily for his lucid and lyrical writing about nature, and this collection has plenty of that. . . . But what makes this a compelling book are his finely detailed, complex characters, simple men and women crafted with sympathy and understanding."--Publishers Weekly-- "Publishers Weekly"

"Bass writes beautifully."--Booklist-- "Booklist"

"Three fascinating long stories from a greatly gifted writer avatar of the outdoors. . . . Beautifully written and filled with radiant imagery and a powerful sense of the mysteries of nature--human and otherwise." --Kirkus Reviews-- "Kirkus Reviews"

"Within this rich blend of naturalism touched by mystery, the exhilarating landscapes of Montana, upstate New York, and northern Michigan inform the book as fully as the human principals."--Library Journal-- "Library Journal" --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
