“Cumbo, at a very young age, shows himself to be a superior stylist, writing imagery that stays with the reader long after his book has been set aside.”
A hotel burns in a small Wyoming town, and uncanny coincidence reunites a young firefighter with his father amidst the smoke and flames. Hearing the news from across the country, a boyhood schoolmate travels west both to visit his friend and escape his own troubles at college. This seemingly impulsive journey becomes nothing less than a pilgrimage that revisits the past, illuminates the present, and defines the future for all three men. A coming-of-age novel for all generations.
