Read an Excerpt


Bill and Leroy stood by the sire run our dad had cobbled together using warped wood from one of our many crumbling sheds. Bill and Leroy smoked cigarette after cigarette, cracking vile jokes and laughing like donkeys. The ground at their feet was useless marl, ugly soil that didn’t give way to something more fertile until the precipice frontage dropped off into a river valley of dark black loam some three quarters of a mile away. But that lush plat of earth wasn’t ours, couldn’t be—we were the Bancrofts, unlikely to own anything of much value.
