From the award-winning, bestselling author of Snow Falling on Cedars—a beautifully observed and emotionally piercing collection of short stories that “center[s] on men in the Pacific Northwest, characters whose emotions are sometimes as isolated as the landscape” (The New York Times).
Like his novel, Snow Falling On Cedars, for which he received the PEN/Faulkner Award, Guterson's short stories are set largely in the Pacific Northwest. In these vast landscapes, hunting, fishing, and sports are the givens of men's lives. With prose that stings like the scent of gunpowder, this is a collection of power.
