The Curlew's Cry is the story of three decades in the life of Pamela Lacey and a Montana town. Descended from pioneers and the daughter of a rancher, Pamela lives according to her own script, and nothing seems to happen as expected. The world beats on―World War I, the influenza epidemic of 1917, the Great Depression―and local fortune rise and fall with the price of beef. For Pamela the fight that counts is defined by a sense of independence and pervasive loneliness, by the twists and turns of love and friendship. Mary Clearman Blew is the acclaimed author of Runaway, All But the Waltz: Essays on a Montana Family, and most recently Balsamroot: A Memoir. The University of Nebraska Press has reprinted Fireweed and Winter Wheat, two other widely praised novels by Mildred Walker.

Review:

"You are either a Mildred Walker enthusiast or you are missing one of the best writers on the American scene."-Philadelphia Inquirer

"A deep understanding of the special quality that characterizes our frontier regions. . .is evident in this period story of Montana. . . .there is a compelling quality that holds reader interest."-Kirkus

"This is a thoughtful novel, with nuances of meaningful beauty, as well as ruggedness and suspense. For Pamela, one feels that curlew''s cry is finally answered when, at the peak of proven self-sufficiency, she responds to the unspoken need of an old friend who might have seemed patently undeserving."-Christian Science Monitor

"A quietly told, honestly plotted story filled with careful details and with good descriptions of various aspects of life in the West."--Harriette Arnow, Saturday Review--Harriette Arnow "Saturday Review "
