Fencing the Sky
A NovelBook - 1999
A powerful first novel probes at the violence at the core of the American Western experience, chronicling a murder over land. Original.
From critically acclaimed author of The Meadow comes a haunting novel of the American West.
Circumstances spiral out of control when an accidental murder springs from the best intentions. With one man dead and another on the run, this is a story about violence and how it destroys lives when the land is at stake. This lyrical first novel--long-awaited by the many admirers of James Galvin's The Meadow--is nothing less than the story of the disappearance of the American West.
