BURNING FENCE. A Western Memoir of Fatherhood

New York: St Martin's Press, 2005. First edition. Hardcover. Signed by the author on the title page. A memoir of startling emotion and grace, Burning Fence is the story of the men in Craig Lesley's family: absent father, Rudell, tough stepfather, Vern, adopted son, Wade, and Craig Lesley himself. Their story is one of hardship, violence, and cautious, heartbreaking attempts toward compassion. Lesley's fearless journey through his family history provides a remarkable portrait of hard living in the Western states, and confirms his place as one of the region's very best storytellers. Craig Lesley, three-time winner of the Pacific Northwest Bookseller Award, and was twice a nominee for a Pulitzer Prize, as well as winning a Silver Spur Award, A near fine copy in a near fine dust jacket.
