Abstract:

"Echo Canyon, a disappearing pocket of wilderness outside Bend, Oregon, is the site of conflicting memories for Justin Caves and his father, Paul. It's slated for redevelopment as a golfing resort. When Paul suggests one last hunting trip, Justin accepts, hoping to set things right with his father, and he agrees to bring his son along, too. As the weekend unfolds, Justin is pushed to the limit by the reckless taunting of his father, the physical demands of the terrain, and the menacing evidence of a bear's hovering presence. All the while, he remembers the promise he made to his skeptical wife: to keep their son safe. For Justin, these few days will map the changing territory of his heart as he discovers how far he will go to protect those he loves"--Jkt. cover.
