Lyman Ward is a retired professor of history, recently confined to a wheelchair, retreats to his ancestral home to write the biography of his grandmother, an elegant and headstrong artist and pioneer who, together with her engineer husband, journeyed through the hardscrabble West nearly 100 before. In discovering her story, he excavates his own, probing the shadows of his experience and the America that has come of age around him.
