Description

An epic family saga set on the sprawling, beautiful ranches of the American West, from the author of The Power of the Dog, "a masterful novelist working at the peak of his form" (Washington Post). 

A Western family story at once intimate and epic, this rich, compelling, emotionally charged novel tells the story of the Sweringen family of Idaho: Emma, the matriarch, known as the Sheep Queen ("surely one of the most fascinating characters in current fiction" —Publishers Weekly); the daughter who disappoints her; the grandson who adores her; and the granddaughter, given up for adoption, who spends nearly half her life finding her way back to her family.

"The Sheep Queen is marvelous…Her reign has a mythic grandeur." —New York Times Book Review

"A fine novel…A sense of family as anchor and root and self-definition [gives] the book its considerable strength…Savage is a writer of the first order, and he possesses in abundance the novelist's highest art — the ability to illuminate and move." —The New Yorker
