History, Advice and Other-Half Truths explores the intersections of Western legends, landscapes, love, terror, as a range of characters struggle to live passionate lives. Here Doc Holliday is turned in by his worn-out lover, Jim Younger laments from his prison cell, Carl Jung builds sandcastles, women find freedom as ranchers and outlaws, grandmothers give advice and haunt bridal bedrooms as the poet grapples with her own transition into a wife and mother.
