Synopsis: Since the 1950s Peter Matthiessen has written fiction and nonfiction of elemental power and moral vision, including the acclaimed novels At Play in the Fields of the Lord and Far Tortuga and works of naturalism and exploration like the National Book Award-winning The Snow Leopard.

This stunning collection of short stories, available for the first time in paperback, spans more than three decades of writing by one of the most acclaimed literary voices of our time.

From the Back Cover: "Mr. Matthiessen proves himself here to be a connoisseur of coiled tensions, between men and women, between people of different social classes, and, repeatedly, between races.... There is something almost mysterious about his achievement...qualities for which one can think of only classical or old-fashioned words: gravitas, grandeur, beauty." -- The New York Times

"These compelling tales of elemental fear and ever-pressing silence culminate in the great, dark and desperate final story, a masterful piece of work by one of our best writers." -- Don DeLillo

"Simply wonderful stories. When all the faddish smoke clears. Peter Matthiessen's work will stand revealed as that of an artist of immense talent, grandeur, and genius." -- Jim Harrison
