With a tender tension between them, Anna learns from her older, adventurous husband how to survive and thrive in a sparsely populated state where resource development, new technologies, and divergent cultural attitudes prevail. Their children set off on their own diverse paths. Not all of them find happiness. Enjoy a stirring account of what once was the way of life in Montana and what becomes of one family.
