18th printing, Hardcover with clear dust wrapper, very good condition, light wear to corners and edges, clean text, satisfaction guaranteed. Earthlight Books is a family owned and operated, independent bookstore serving Walla Walla, Washington since 1973. In these hauntingly beautiful stories of abandonment and vengeance, extreme situations lead to disturbing conclusions. A missionary is sent to a place so distant he finds his God has no power there; a husband abandons his wife as they honeymoon in the South American jungle; a splash of water triggers an explosion of violence; and a boy's drug-induced transformation leads to cruelty enjoyed and suffered. Masterfully written, these are chilling tales from sun-drenched and brutal climes.

More Description

Short stories by an American expatriate deal with life in Morocco and Central America and focus on the themes of transference of personal identity, natural landscapes, and the perception of civilization by an outsider.
