"Kent Meyers's first novel, The River Warren, brought him critical acclaim for deftly conveying the intricate world of a small farming community. Now with Light in the Crossing, Meyers returns to his fictional town of Cloten, Minnesota, to explore a way of life that's dying out in America."--BOOK JACKET. "In this short-story collection, each character is intimately linked to the land in and around Cloten. We meet a woman who returns home to care for her family's farm after years of absence, a man whose obsession with bow hunting affects his life in complex ways, a farmer's son who plays a dangerous game of drag-racing roulette, and a Harley-riding corn husker. In all of these stories Meyers examines the secrets that family members keep from one another, and the tales that pass between men and women living in rural communities."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
