Abstract

The collection of works includes two short stories (“Sine Die”; “Revolutionaries”) and excerpts from the novel, Milk River. The pieces feature Montana women haunted by mothers past and present, amid the colonialist echoes of the western landscape. Questions of inheritance, the quiet rebellion of women, and what it means to possess land itself recur.
