Hurricane is a rural, Utah town dominated by Mormon culture ... which makes Henry Rotheau, an agnostic, and Diane Walker, a fundamentalist polygamist fresh out of the desert, a mismatched pair of outsiders who find comfort only in one another.
But when Diane returns to her roots, Henry is left to desperately seek out his place in the world -- first by sampling the religion that surrounds him and then through immersion in the military. Shocked by the hierarchy and mindless obedience eerily paralleled in both worlds, he concludes that no man can live in society and be true to himself. In the tradition of philosophers new and old, he will become self-reliant, draw upon wilderness skills imparted by his uncle and subsist in the forests of northern Arizona.
But peace is not to be found, and when domestic terrorism invades the most remote of settings, the loner must confront the enemy of his enemies.
