Abstract:

Thirty-five years after the Civil War Abel Truman, a wounded veteran, travels to Washington State and attempts to cross over the Olympic Mountains, but his trip is hindered by two thugs.

Thirty years after the Civil War's Battle of the Wilderness left him maimed, Abel Truman has found his way to the edge of the continent, the rugged, majestic coast of Washington State, where he lives alone in a driftwood shack with his beloved dog. He is on a final journey over the snowbound Olympic Mountains. As Abel makes his way into the foothills, the violence he endures at the hands of two thugs who are after his dog is crosscut with his memories of the horrors of the war, the friends he lost, and the savagery he took part in and witnessed.
