Publisher Description

In this shattering and iconic American novel, PEN prize-winning writer, Smith Henderson explores the complexities of freedom, community, grace, suspicion and anarchy, brilliantly depicting our nation's disquieting and violent contradictions.

After trying to help Benjamin Pearl, an undernourished, nearly feral eleven-year-old boy living in the Montana wilderness, social worker Pete Snow comes face to face with the boy's profoundly disturbed father, Jeremiah. With courage and caution, Pete slowly earns a measure of trust from this paranoid survivalist itching for a final conflict that will signal the coming End Times.

But as Pete's own family spins out of control, Pearl's activities spark the full-blown interest of the F.B.I., putting Pete at the center of a massive manhunt from which no one will emerge unscathed.

Good Story

Thoroughly enjoyable story. It wound around itself a little too much for my taste, and the resolution of the main character and his daughter seemed hastily finished.

Worth my time and effort!

Took me until midway through this book to embrace his writing technique. What seem to me like fragmented run on sentences, some not making sense! But wow, great story! Could not put it down.
