Set in the vast and unforgiving prairie of eastern Montana from 1916 to 1946, In Open Spaces is the compelling story of the Arbuckle brothers:

A rising baseball star who mysteriously drowns in the river

A World War I veteran who abandons his family only to return to reclaim the family ranch

The youngest brother, whose marriage to Helen creates a fault line between him and the rest of his family


A shrewd, observant man burdened with growing suspicions of Jack's role in his brother's death

With breathtaking descriptions of the Montana landscape, Russell Rowland masterfully weaves a fascinating tale of the psychological wars that can rip a family apart...and, ultimately, the redemption that can bring them back together.
