The prologue of this eloquent and haunting memoir describes the bleak circumstances of Becahrd's father's suicide in rural British Columbia when Bechard was only 20 years old. Deni had spent much of his life torn by his father's rages and detached demeanor while trying to forge a bond with the adventurous and thrill seeking side of his dad who had robbed banks and spent time in prison before meeting Bechard's mother. Heartbreaking and honest in its descriptions of the landscape, both emotional and physical.
