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.
