Synopsis: Louise Young is an astonishing new fiction virtuoso. In this unforgettable debut novel, Young's protagonist, Icarus, a young urban misfit, discovers a treasure map in a second-hand bookstore, He, his two brothers, and five of their friends set out into the wilderness of the Rocky Mountains in search of the Lost Lemon Mine, where they hope to find a hoard of hidden gold. As they try to locate the ever-elusive mine, they begin to see into another reality inhabited by a band of native spirits. The spirits set about defending their psychic space and cause havoc among the brutish interlopers. When they finally find the gold, madness ensues and the resulting conflict involves an extraordinary struggle between the indigenous people in the spirit world and the urban carpetbaggers stuck in their material dimension. Icarus is a story about greed and human degradation, haunted by the mythic and the supernatural. It is a high octane mix redolent of the Treasure of the Sierra Madre a la Sam Sh
