In November 2000, after the presidential election but before the Supreme Court handed down its verdict, John Daniel climbed into his pickup, drove to a remote location in Oregon's Rogue River Canyon, and quit civilization. His cabin was snowed in soon after his arrival, and until spring thawed the road he hoped to hear no human voice but his own. Through this extreme isolation, Daniel shaped a life replete with reflections on identity, nature and the complicated bonds of family. This book chronicles that season of memory and Daniel's search for a coherent place to stand on the earth.
