Australian writer Rod Jones bends history at one of its unique crossroads to create this intriguing work of historical fiction. As both frontier life and the 19th century wind down, Jones fashions a meeting in the Wisconsin woodlands between soon-to-be-famous evangelist Billy Sunday, essayist Frederick Jackson Turner, and photographer Charles Van Schaick. As the characters' histories unfold, their intersection stands as a metaphor for the closing of one century and the dawning of another.
