Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Publisher's description: Like his novel, Snow Falling On Cedars, for which he received the PEN/Faulkner Award, Guterson's beautifully observed and emotionally piercing 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.

Synopsis:

The vast wilderness landscapes of the Pacific Northwest become the backdrop for eye-opening discoveries about cruelty, aging, apathy, and the human capacity for grief and deception, in a collection of short stories
