About this title

Synopsis:

PEN/Faulkner Award Finalist and winner of the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Award. William Kittredge called The Jump-Off Creek "a truly beautiful piece of American storytelling." The struggles of a widowed homesteader braving the austere and unsparing Blue Mountains contain "enough valor to make an ordinary life seem heroic" (Los Angeles Times). Told with Molly Gloss's unsentimental reserve, this novel is an inspiring reminder of a rich and uniquely American past. (A Mariner Reissue)

About the Author:
