Not yet rated | write a review
Larry Watson''s bestselling novel Montana 1948 was acclaimed as "a work of art" (Susan Petro, San Francisco Chronicle), a prize-winning evocation of a time, a place, and a family. Now Watson returns to Montana 1948''s vast landscape with a stunning prequel that illuminates the Hayden clan''s early years and the circumstances that led to the events of Montana 1948.

In Montana, the Hayden name is law. For the Hayden boys, Wesley and Frank, their legacy carries an aura of privilege and power that doesn''t stop at the Montana border, even when an ill-fated hunting trip makes them temporary outlaws. But what it means to bear the name is something each generation must discover for itself. From Julian, the hard-bitten and blustery patriarch, to Gail, Sheriff Wesley Hayden''s spirited wife and moral compass, Larry Watson gives breath and blood to a remarkable family''s struggles and rewards, and opens an evocative window on the very heart of the American West.

Editorial Reviews

Paul Pintarich The Oregonian Watson''s tales are unforgettable tales of experience, set in a place as unchanging as any in America; a rare place where we still look for roots and a vanished frontier, and where we still uncover horrors that bring down reminders of what it is to be human no matter where we are.
