Summary

An indelible portrait of a woman who through great toughness of character blazes her own trail

Novelist William Haywod Henderson has won acclaim for his depictions of land and nature and his ability to bring the American West to vivid life. Of his most recent novel, The Rest of the Earth, Annie Proulx remarked that Henderson ''writes some of the most evocative and transcendently beautiful prose in contemporary American literature.'' Redolent with myth, humor, strange landscapes, and stark reality, Henderson's new novel tells the story of Augusta Locke, a troubled yet spirited woman, as she raises her daughter in the deserts of Wyoming. Spanning the twentieth century, Augusta's extraordinary challenges play out themes of love and loss, home and family, redemption and reconciliation.
