Thirty years ago, Abel Truman found himself on the wrong side in the Battle of the Wilderness, one of the bloodiest clashes of the American Civil War. Now an old and ailing man, Abel must make one heroic final journey over snowbound mountains. Abel's tortured and ultimately redemptive path leads him to change the lives of those he meets, as he encounters compassion amid brutality and tenderness within loss.

Professional reviews

"An affecting and lyrical debut novel from award winning short story writer, Lance Weller ‘What's most gorgeous here is the language, Weller's descriptions of the natural world, the changing emotional terrain within his characters, and violence. The author seems to be reminding us that the Wilderness remains both without and within. A remarkable debut, deeply affecting and heartfelt.’ GIL ADAMSON, author of The Outlander"
