the ephemeral world of cattle ranchers in the 1880s, this intimate saga
delights in a Montana community’s boisterous, wanderlusting eccentrics as they
chase after love and their unbridled ambitions. At its center is Lat Evans,
good-hearted and yet seduced by the possibilities for prosperity in his new
life; gradually he discerns how the perils of the natural world, and most
especially human nature, can conspire to frustrate a young man’s best
intentions. A lively, quixotic revisit to our historic youth, this literary
classic deftly captures western drama at its finest, with all its accompanying
toils of the heart.
