About this title

Synopsis:

Hearing that his childhood sweetheart Emily has shot her husband, Lucien Taylor returns to his native Montana in hopes of reclaiming his passion for Emily but winds up rebuilding Emily's abandoned ranch into a hot-springs resort

From the Back Cover:

In life Lucien Taylor has made several mistakes, but the two most grievous are as follows: leaving his wife and son to take up with his old flame, Emily; and putting up Emily's bail when she is arrested for murder. The upshot is that Lucien is left stranded in Montana, with a malodorous hot spring and a squandered sense of purpose. As told by Thomas McGuane, Lucien's attempt to recoup his losses makes for a funny, rueful, and beautifully rendered portrait of American manhood on the rocks-a book that says volumes about the lives of dogs and falcons, the yearnings of sons for fathers, and the skeptical truce that men and women sometimes reach when they get tired of fighting.
