In this day-by-day account of a long winter visit to Montana, Snipes uncovers signs of innocence and contradiction in human nature: our need for place, our need for company, and our delight in discovery. At times funny, cynical, and even philosophical, each story brings the character and culture of contemporary northwestern Montana to life by populating the landscape with the people, their lives and stories, the beauty of winter life, and the connection to the land and history in this stronghold of Americana. This book is part travel memoir, part meditation journal, and all filled with humor, melancholy, and joy.
