Product description

Review

"Two stories, past and present, merge to produce what important fiction must: a sense of the enhancement of life". -- Los Angeles Times

Synopsis

The novel tells the story of Lyman Ward, a retired professor of history and author of books about the Western frontier, who returns to his ancestral home in the Sierra Nevada. Wheelchair-bound with a crippling bone disease, Ward embarks nonetheless on a search to rediscover his grandmother, no long dead, who made her own journey to Grass Valley nearly a hundred years earlier.
