520    "In the lawless, drought-ridden lands of the Arizona 
       Territory in 1893, two extraordinary lives collide. Nora 
       is an unflinching frontierswoman, alone in a house 
       abandoned by the men in her life--her husband, who has 
       gone in search of water for the parched household, and her
       two older sons, who have gone in search of their father 
       after his return is delayed. Nora is biding her time with 
       her youngest son, a boy with a bad eye who is convinced 
       that a mysterious beast is stalking the land around their 
       home, and a seventeen year old maid named Josie, her 
       husband's cousin who communes with spirits. Lurie is the 
       son of a dead dockworker, a former outlaw, and a man 
       haunted by ghosts--he sees lost souls who want something 
       from him, and he finds reprieve from their longing in an 
       unexpected relationship that inspires an epic journey 
       across the West. The way in which Nora and Lurie's stories
       intertwine is the surprise and suspense of this brilliant 
       novel. Mythical, lyrical, and sweeping in scope, Inland 
       showcases all of Téa Obreht's talents as a writer, as she 
       subverts and reimagines the classical American genre of 
       the Western, making it entirely--and unforgettably--her 
       own"--|cProvided by publisher.
