Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This new edition of The Power of the Dog marks the return of one of the most powerful and distinctive voices in the literature of the American West.

Set in 1920s Montana, this compelling domestic drama tells the story of two brothers?and of the woman and young boy, mother and son, whose arrival on the brothers' ranch shatters an already tenuous peace. From the novel's startling first paragraph to its very last word, Thomas Savage's voice?and the intense passion and cruelty of his characters?holds readers in thrall.

Review:

"Gripping and tense...a work of literary art." Annie Proulx, from her afterword

Synopsis:

First published in 1967, Thomas Savage's western novel about two brothers and the competition between them when one marries now includes an afterword by Annie Proulx.
