About this title
The year is 1885 and Abigail Peacock is resisting what seems to be an inevitable future a sensible career as a teacher and marriage to the earnestly attentive local storeowner.
But then she buys a rifle, and everything changes.
This Godforsaken Place is the absorbing tale of one tenacious woman’s journey set against dramatic myths of the Canadian wilderness and the American Wild West. Abigail's adventure introduces her to some of the most infamous characters of her time—including Annie Oakley and Gabriel Dumont—and brings the high stakes of the New World into startling focus.
Early on, Cinda Gault's imagination was captured by women's issues as she organized a shelter for victims of domestic violence. After completing two Masters degrees in Criminology and English, she went on to earn her PhD featuring female and Canadian national identity issues in women's writing of the 1960s and 1970s. Since then, she has taught and written about Canadian literature. Now she offers this story of a woman's epic journey with a horse and a gun.
