High Adventure in Big Sky Country

OCT14-the-high-divide-for-webWhen Ulysses Pope abruptly walks away from his wife and sons in 1886 Minnesota, he leaves behind a cryptic note, and a family torn by doubt and confusion. What follows in Lin Enger’s wonderful novel The High Divide: A Novel is a compelling story of a house divided,

of a man’s haunting pursuit of forgiveness, and a family’s search for the husband and father they thought they knew—but never really did. Set against the backdrop of the Smithsonian Institute’s Hornaday expedition to preserve, by its destruction, the last herd of wild bison in Montana, The High Divide is a vivid reminder of why we read, and why we want to.
