Wallace Stegner is in true form with his novel...a master of literature, and a well-told story. I was mesmerized from page 1.

He was a consummate writer--this book has very very well developed characters, plot and descriptions of everything if you slow down long enough to really really read them, are wonderful. Found myself going back pages when I was reading too fast because I realized I was missing the whole, round 'sense' of a scene he set up with incredible descriptions that made you feel like you were right there. The subtlety of how deeply he understood each of the characters was impressive.
