Like his novel, Snow Falling On Cedars, for which he received the PENFaulkner Award, Guterson's beautifully observed and emotionally piercing short stories are set largely in the Pacific Northwest. In these vast landscapes, hunting, fishing, and sports are the givens of men's lives. But although Guterson's characters go into the wilderness in search of mallards or silver trout, they discover other things instead: the decay of their youthful ardor; the motiveless cruelty of strangers; their own capacity for deception and grief.
"Brilliant.... Manages to address moral questions and much more with a supple grace that easily outshines the flashy emptiness of much short fiction."--Seattle Times
