Description


A knock-out debut story collection that follows women and families facing economic and environmental justice issues in the American West.


Firmly rooted in the rural spaces and small towns of Colorado and Nevada, Site Fidelity spans the decades from the 1970s to a plausible near future. A seventy-four-year-old nun turns to eco-sabotage to stop a fracking project. An ornithologist returns home to care for her rancher father and gets caught up trying to protect a breeding group of endangered Gunnison sage-grouse. A woman delivers her own baby in a Nevada ghost town. A young farmer hides her chicken flock from the government during a bird flu epidemic.


For readers of Pam Houston and Annie Proulx, Site Fidelity evokes the bleakness and beauty of our threatened western landscapes in lean, lyrical prose. It introduces unforgettable characters who must confront the challenges of caregiving and loss alongside the very practical impacts of fracking, water rights law, and other agricultural policies—all aspects of life on the shifting terrain of our changing planet.
