About this item
Gwen, the straight-talking narrator of this poignant tale, has always kept herself moving from one place to the next. But when she meets Danny, a Blackfoot Indian, she glimpses what it might be like to feel grounded. Drawn to an increasingly longer stay in East Fork, Minnesota, amidst the trailer parks, stray dogs, and mountains, Gwen allows herself to hope. This story, about loss and something like love, is a skillful study of people and place.
