Summary
"Bankrupted by her husband's folly and death, a late-nineteenth-century widow embarks on a buffalo hunt with her estranged, mysterious brother-in-law, only to find herself fighting for their land as well as the lives of the hired men and families in their charge"--
Summary
To pay off her late husband's debts and save the family ranch, widow Elizabeth Coughlin organizes a bison-hunting expedition in Comanche territory, enlisting her brother-in-law, Michael, to help. What follows is a dramatic story of survival in a harsh and inhospitable landscape. In spare prose that does not shy away from depicting the harsh realities of 1870s frontier life, Savage Country vividly recreates the Great Plains during the period of America's Westward Expansion. Fans of Lin Enger's The High Divide will enjoy this literary Western. -- Description by Gillian Speace
