But for the nail biters, thumb suckers, and teeth grinders, the cast-away offspring of parents who are busy traveling, being divorced, remarrying, and garnering fortunes, it’s just another place to face rejection—until Cotton.

Cotton pulls them together. In a hot-wired pickup, he leads “the Bedwetters” on a fantastic mission to save a heard of buffalo, and in the process, to save themselves. But as the raw red Arizona sun rises, they will discover the cost of their one grand moment of glory.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A tremendous tour de force that manages somehow to contain the estrangement of our youth, our mad assault on ecology, and the increasingly strained honor of the United States. It scores on all points and does it in a story both tender and terrible.”

    Hollywood Reporter

  • “An exciting mission-pursuit story with an engrossing cast of characters.”

    Publisher’s Weekly
