About the Book

Joy and disaster share the stage with death and re-birth in the story of a young man's passion for ranching, his enthusiastic wife's desire to learn a new rural lifestyle and their struggle to survive on a small cattle ranch in Western Montana. Their 100-year old community along the creek is engaged in its own struggle with survival when faced with a creeping urban sprawl searching for space and beauty. This conflict reaches a climax one summer evening in the nineteen sixties when tragedy strikes and an era comes to an end.


 


About the Author

Recently widowed, Kalli Deschamps divides her time between Montana and Ari-zona. Her life as a rancher, teacher and professional artist has prepared her to chronicle life in the contemporary west. The characters in her novels reflect the joys and frustrations of today’s rural residents as they strive to cope with the needs and wants of an increasingly urban population. A trip to Montana during her sixteenth summer was the beginning of a love affair with the state she has never lost. It’s reflected in her education; MSU, Bozeman; U of M, Missoula; her marriage to a Montanan and her subsequent careers. Montana is also home to her family; three married children, twin great-granddaughters and two of her four grandchildren.
