Ein überwältigender Roman über die Zerbrechlichkeit von Menschlichkeit und Würde. Es ist um 1870, als Will Andrews der Aussicht auf eine glänzende Karriere und Harvard den Rücken kehrt. Beflügelt von der Naturauffassung Ralph W. Emersons, sucht er im Westen nach einer »ursprünglichen Beziehung zur Natur«. In Butcher’s Crossing, einem kleinen entlegenen Städtchen in Kansas, wimmelt es von rastlosen Männern, die das Abenteuer suchen und schnell verdientes Geld ebenso schnell wieder vergeuden. Einer von ihnen lockt Andrews mit Geschichten von riesigen Büffelherden, die, versteckt in einem entlegenen Tal tief in den Colorado Rockies, nur eingefangen werden müssten: Andrews schließt sich einer Expedition an, mit dem Ziel, die Tiere aufzuspüren. Die Reise ist aufreibend und strapaziös, aber am Ende erreichen die Männer einen Ort von paradiesischer Schönheit. Doch statt von Ehrfurcht werden sie von Gier ergriffen – und entfesseln eine Tragödie. Ein Roman darüber, wie man im Leben verliert und was man dadurch gewinnen kann.
