[A] masterfully told Western reinvention of Homer’s Odyssey…Set against a backdrop of beauty and danger, this is the moving story of a man coming to terms with his past. In its narrative simplicity and emotional directness, it is reminiscent of John Ford’s classic The Searchers.
And Library Journal, in a starred review, says
Moving through the High Divide–‘the rough country between the Yellowstone and Missouri rivers’–even as its characters move through important divides, or turning points, of their own, Enger’s novel is told in beautifully exact, liquid language that wastes no time, just as one cannot afford to waste time when making a journey such as the Pope family’s. Highly recommended.
Monologue topics: exhaustion, going to the doctor, Legoland, fear, loathing.
