Description

Chosen by the 2004 Canada Reads panel as the one book all Canadians should read, Guy Vanderhaeghe's sweeping epic of the old west is now available in audio. A compelling saga of intersecting lives and multiple betrayals, The Last Crossing describes a treacherous journey across the Prairies in the late 19th century. Charles Gaunt and his preening older brother have crossed the Atlantic to search for Charles's twin, who disappeared without a trace in a Montana blizzard. Enlisting the services of a Metis guide, they are joined by Lucy Stoveall and a heavy-drinking Civil War veteran, Custis Straw, who secretly loves her. This unlikely posse comes vividly to life with a full cast, including celebrated actor Eric Peterson as the crusty Custis Straw.
