Baker & Taylor
A rancher and his wife face a conflict over his actions to preserve his family land. What was planned as a final trip together causes them to see their marriage in a new light.

Blackwell North Amer
Hiking on their tenth annual trip, Mack and his wife, Vonnie, find the magnificent woods and stunning mountains of Wyoming full of ghosts and danger. Mack comes from a long line of ranchers, and his dedication to keeping the family land has led him into penury and a life of crime. Vonnie is a fiercely intelligent, headstrong girl who came west for love, only to have it stolen from her bit by bit.
They've made this trip to say goodbye to each other, but as they navigate the trails they know so well, they come to understand the true nature of their wounds. And Mack has one more secret: he is trying to receive a signal and retrieve something that has fallen from the sky. It is a beacon that will lead them into a wood far darker than they've ever imagined.
Ron Carlson's stories and novels have connected with readers in profound and often deeply emotional ways. This thrilling, masterfully portrayed story of love and peril is sure to win legions of new fans.
