About book: If a novel could be a poem, Lime Creek is it.Arresting in its imagery, surprising and poignant in both its style and point of view, Lime Creek transports the reader in its sharp realism like a stage rambling over an uneven trail, but comforts in the softness of its delivery - like the reassuring embrace of a trusted companion.That companion is writer, Joe Henry. He is to be trusted. To be appreciated for his fearless depth in telling a deceptively simple tale... elevating ethereal emotion to the point of physical reaction.This book is a unique experience in the arena of American fiction, and like any adventurous journey, leaves me hungry for the approaching, longer view. Poetic meditation on ranch life in a windblown and snow-covered Wyoming as unforgiving as it is unchanging. Episodic novel-in-stories of the Davis family, Spencer and Elizabeth, eldest son Lonnie and twins Luke and Whitney--but especially of Luke, whose coming of age, along with Wyoming itself, is the novel's focus. The birth of a filly, the death of a beloved mare, the eternally hungry cattle, the symbolic struggle between boy/man and nature are all memorably presented in breathtakingly lyrical prose.
