Author Karl Beckstrandabout this book: What if you came home after a journey and your family was no longer there? What if someone else was living in your house and running what you used to manage? What if they tried to kill you when you showed up?

An adventure 108 years in the making! A man and a woman, each searching for missing family members, clash amid a Nevada silver rush scheme that leaves both unsure who to trust--and scrambling to stay alive.

Reminiscent of Twain, the author's writing comes from intimate knowledge of the era and area. Having lived off the land, Wilcox depended on his wit, grit, and strength—and that of his animals—for survival, just as these characters do. Wilcox masterfully weaves authentic detail and care for the land and its creatures into a mystery that will make your heart pound and fill your lungs with the "rarefied air" of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

Comes with additional short story. Family safe (ages 14 & up), diverse characters, 54,000 words, 210 pages, 5.25"x8" paperback, simultaneously published as A Sky So Big (YA, also a paperback and audiobook).
