Summary (From the publisher):

In America's little-known surviving wildernesses, things can be at once normal and extraordinary. A man, a woman and their team of hunting dogs wander for miles in a miraculous air space under a frozen lake. A couple exploring a hidden mine abandon their civilised selves for a time of primal existence before returning to their outward lives. Inspired by the author's own experiences in the remote mountains of Montana, The Hermit's Story tells tales of luck, grace and hard circumstance, of events that are unprecedented, astonishing and at the same time entirely real. Rick Bass's understated, magical prose depicts phenomena that link the manmade and the natural, fire and firefighters, an owl and a canoe. This is how short stories are supposed to be: windows on worlds, satisfying and unforgettable.
