Description

The award-winning Western epic by "one of Canada's greatest living writers" (David Adams Richards) Lightning takes up where Fred Stenson's Giller-nominated and much-honoured novel, The Trade, left off.

It is 1881, and the fur trade has been forced to make room for another economy. Seven thousand cattle are crossing the border from Montana into newly named Alberta. The openrange ranch era, Canadian style, is about to begin. Doc Windham, a Texan, is one of the cowboys trailing the herd.
