Inhaltsangabe: Funny, breezy and eccentric ... these tales fairly hum with energy and humour' Daily Mail 'Pam Houston has verve and perfect pitch ... she snaps along in a sassy canter, her prose sharp and clean' - New York Times Book Review Sexy, gutsy and intoxicating, these tales tell of the pleasures of dancing the two-step at the Stockgrowers' Ball, the pity of stalking beautiful beasts and, of course, of sex, love and loss. This stinging-fresh collection opens up new worlds - of high deserts and Alaskan tundra, of perilous white water, the frozen rockies and of 'cowboys' and strong women. These women part daredevil, part philosopher - know they should know better, but they don't; they wrestle within themselves, with danger and above all with their men whose bodies speak volumes, but whose emotions are not so communicative.
Reseña del editor: These 12 tales tell of the pleasures of dancing the two-step at the Stockgrowers Ball, the pity of stalking beautiful beasts, the comforting companionship of dogs, the challenge of a tetch horse and, of course, of love, sex and loss.
