Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the author of Snow Falling on Cedarscomes this bestselling novel about a dying man's final journey through a landscape that has always sustained him and provided him with hope and challenges.

When he discovers that he has terminal cancer, retired heart surgeon Ben Givens refuses to simply sit back and wait. Instead he takes his two beloved dogs and goes on a last hunt, determined to end his life on his own terms. But as the people he meets and the memories over which he lingers remind him of the mystery of life's endurance, his trek into the American West becomes much more than a final journey.

Synopsis:

From the author of THE COUNTRY AHEAD OF US and SNOW FALLING ON CEDARS, a tale about Dr Ben Givens, who, after becoming ill, leaves his home in Seattle, never intending to return. Ben embarks on a journey past snow-covered mountains to a place of canyons, sagelands and orchards where he intends to commit suicide, but it doesn't all go to plan.

Synopsis:

Dr Givens, a heart surgeon, sets out on a journey in his final hours that ends up being a life-enhancing experience. While admittedly not the most cheerful tale ever penned, like "Snow Falling on Cedars" before it, Gutterson's new novel is a sure-fire bestseller. "The Times" described this book as "...suffused with a sorrowful beauty: that some simple joy lies therein, and that it is ultimately life-afirming, is part of its own mystery".
