Summary
Rick Bass is unparalleled in his ability to evoke the enduring verities of the human heart amid astonishing portraits of wilderness both within and without. In his world we encounter larger-than-life characters--a couple that escapes from a sudden blizzard by traversing a frozen lake beneath the ice, or a young boxer who flees from a charging horse as a means of training for bar fights--each attempting to triumph against fate and time, in rugged landscapes that both save and destroy
