Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
In the autumn of 1960, Joe Brinson and his parents move to the edge of the Rocky Mountains to cash in on the promise of the American frontier, to seize a future as broad as the sweep of the Montana prairies. But when Joe's father leaves home to fight the forest fires that have raged since the summer, and his mother meets an older man, Joe finds his life changing too suddenly, blazing into unrecognisable pieces like the forests surrounding them.

Review:
"Powerful and haunting." — Boston Globe

"Full of prose that makes the reader shiver...a rich and readable story, a genuine narrative.... It leaves a sense of hope, a conviction that life is worth living." — Chicago Sun-Times

"One of his generation's most eloquent voices." — Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times

"A Babe Ruth of novelists.... One of the finest curators of the great American living museum." — Washington Post Book World

From the Back Cover

Review:
The setting is Great Falls, Montana, where the Rockies end and where, in 1960, the promise of good times seems as limitless as the sweep of the prairies beyond. This is where the Brinson family hopes to find a better life. Instead, sixteen-year-old Joe Brinson watches his parents discover the limits of their marriage and, at the same time, the unexpected depths of dignity and courage that remain even when love dies.
