South of an Unnamed Creek
by Anne Cameron
". . . joins courage to comedy with a light, sure touch."
Book DescriptionAnne Cameron writes with uncompromising candidness of the relationships between men and women. Her stories combine wit and gritty realism with a clear sense of the storyteller's art. Quite simply she is willing to venture into uncharted territory and speak of the things she finds there in a voice that is clear and at times unsettling.
In South of an Unnamed Creek, Cameron once again tackles mostly unexplored material in her quest for a unique feminist perspective on traditional story-telling. This novel focuses on five women from diverse backgrounds who find common ground in the dance halls of the Klondike Goldrush. From the author of The Journey and Child of Her People, another unusual and enlightening approach to the frontier tale.
