In 1903 Mary Boulton flees alone across the West, one heart-pounding step ahead of the law. At nineteen, she has just become a widow–and her husband's killer. As bloodhounds track her frantic race toward the mountains, she is tormented by mad visions and by the knowledge that her two ruthless brothers-in-law are in pursuit, determined to avenge their younger brother's death. Responding to little more than the primitive instinct for survival at any cost, she retreats ever deeper into the wilderness–and into the wilds of her own mind.
Fleeing toward the western mountains in 1903, after killing her husband, young Mary Boulton instinctively and frantically hides from her ruthlessly vengeful brothers-in-law by retreating ever deeper into her own untamed mind and the harsh wilderness, where she encounters a host of eccentrics. 30,000 first printing. Reprint.
