In the fall of 1978, on a 640-acre family ranch on Goat Mountain in Northern California, an eleven-year-old boy joins his grandfather, his father, and his father’s best friend on the family’s annual deer hunt. When they find a poacher on the land, the boy is handed his father’s rifle to view the man through the sight and tragedy ensues. One single moment, one single event that will change the course of their lives forever. This is a haunting book, a book that is not a page turner but a slow read into a horrific event and what occurs afterward. This book is wonderfully written, the landscape is describe in such detail that you feel you are there. This book is not for everyone, but it is a worthwhile read.
