A blown rear tire serves as the impetus for a young archaeologist's wilderness awakening in this first book by Montana writer Malcolm Brooks. Set in the mid-fifties, Painted Horses tracks the enlightenment of inexperienced artifact-hunter Catherine Lemay as she gains her first deep sense of what will be lost in a great American dam project. As much the story of the evolution and destruction of western expanses as it is a coming-of-age story, this debut possesses truly epic scope. Discover Great New Writers readers suggested that this selection will be appealing to fans of books such as Peace Like a River and Cold Mountain.
