Summary (From the publisher):

This compelling and imaginative first novel with its locale in the Rockies introduced an original talent to the Canadian literary scene. Sheila Watson writes with extreme economy and directness about the complexities of human relationships. Her sharply experimental approach to the novelist's craft has resulted in an unusual pattern of composition that immediately strikes the eye. No less striking are the stark reality of the images evoked and the austere beauty of the prose.
