The Outlander

Review
A young widow races through the Canadian Rockies of 1903, just ahead of her brothers-in-law tracking her for her husband's murder. The story of her actions unfolds slowly as she treks through the wilderness, accepting help from strangers but trusting no one. She is a victim and she is also an unreliable heroine since she sees visions, lies, and steals. The writing is lyrical, creating beautiful images of frigid landscapes in exacting detail. It's a love story, a tale of redemption, and a study of how misfits seem to make their way and find each other.

Spiders in the Hairdo

Review
A fun, quick read, with short stories & anecdotes ranging from ghostly stories you've perhaps heard around a campfire to jokes you might have heard while listening to A Prairie Home Companion. The tight, bare-bones presentation of the tales practically begs readeresr to personalize them with their own details, and spin them on to new generations.
