More Description

In this darkly compelling drama of fathers and sons, land and rapacity, murder, honor, and revenge, an "extraordinarily accomplished writer" (Philadelphia Inquirer) returns to the primeval landscape of the Florida Everglades, the setting of his bestseller Killing Mister Watson.

In 1910 a sugarcane planter named E. J. Watson was gunned down by a group of his neighbors, perhaps in cold blood, perhaps in self-defense. Years later, E.J.'s son Lucius tries to discover the truth of his father's life and death. Yet even as Lucius tries to redeem his half-lost life by gathering the testimony (and braving the threats) of poachers and renegades, he struggles for the future of the remote country in which they live. Beautifully composed, filled with the eerie splendor of an endangered world, Lost Man's River is "a great narrative...with moments of transcendent humor, insight, and love"(Boston Globe).
