Summary
  • "A bankrupt widow embarks on a buffalo hunt in 1873 to try to save her late husband's land, and encounters multiple dangers along the way"--
  • September 1873. Elizabeth Coughlin, a widow bankrupted by her husband's folly and death, embarks on a buffalo hunt with her estranged brother-in-law, Michael. She hopes to salvage something of her former life and the lives of the hired men and their families who depend on her. The buffalo hunt that her husband had planned, she now realizes, was his last hope for saving their land. As they ride across the Deadline demarcating Indian Territory from their home state, Kansas, they're on borrowed time: the Comanche are in winter quarters, and the cruel work of slaughtering the buffalo is unraveling their souls

Summary
To pay off her late husband's debts and save the family ranch, widow Elizabeth Coughlin organizes a bison-hunting expedition in Comanche territory, enlisting her brother-in-law, Michael, to help. What follows is a dramatic story of survival in a harsh and inhospitable landscape. In spare prose that does not shy away from depicting the harsh realities of 1870s frontier life, Savage Country vividly recreates the Great Plains during the period of America's Westward Expansion. Fans of Lin Enger's The High Divide will enjoy this literary Western. -- Description by Gillian Speace
