A starkly beautiful memoir of farming and hunting life in North Dakota in verse, prose, and woodcuts. Narrative accounts by a father and son on family history and the fate of their farm are punctuated by lyric poems as terse as gunshots in duck season. Charles Beck's color woodcuts hover between abstraction and photographic accuracy. Murphy is a farmer and venture capitalist in his native North Dakota. He was Scholar of the House in Poetry at Yale.
