Cloudsplitter: A Novel by Russell Banks

I read this book last June so the details are getting a little fuzzy, but I will say that it was one of the best historical fiction books I have read. The author does a remarkable job of giving you a sense of what it might have been like to be living in the antebellum Adirondacks and Kansas. It's roughly the size of a dictionary, but I would recommend it nonetheless.

  1. I love this picture. It takes me back to an August hike with my favorite backpacker. :-)
