Savage's wonderfully written and beautifully detailed novel deals with the Metlen family of Grayling, Montana, in the early part of this century. John, Lizzie, and their son Zack make their living as ranchers and hotel owners. While initially among the first families in town, they lose their social status as the town develops and the big money men take over. They are people of substance with visions just a bit out of step with others, and with their share of weaknesses.
