From critically acclaimed author of The Meadow comes a haunting novel of the American West.

Circumstances spiral out of control when an accidental murder springs from the best intentions. With one man dead and another on the run, this is a story about violence and how it destroys lives when the land is at stake. This lyrical first novel--long-awaited by the many admirers of James Galvin's The Meadow--is nothing less than the story of the disappearance of the American West.

Praise for Fencing the Sky

"Part celebration and part angry lament, Fencing the Sky is a memorable debut, the most ambitious and original novel about the modern West to have appeared in some time." --Kirkus (starred review)

"Galvin writes with laconic precision about a life he obviously knows well...this is an extraordinarily lyrical book." --Men's Journal

"You don't have to be a Great Plains cowboy to join in Galvin's powerful, haunting elegy for a lost way of life." --Wilwaukee Journal Sentinel

"[Galvin's] prose is disciplined, beautifully unadorned, and unwaveringly true." --The Boston Book Review
