From the Publisher
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''. With the precision of a master storyteller, Watson moves seamlessly among the strong and hard-bitten characters that make up the Hayden family, and in the process opens an evocative window on the very heart of the American West.
