A modern classic that continues to gather a loyal audience, Angel Fire is a haunting tale of two brothers on separate odysseys of self-discovery.
Twenty-four years after war correspondent Daniel McLeod is killed in a Viet Cong ambush, his only brother, Cassidy, is mysteriously drawn to their Wyoming hometown, where he must confront a lifetime of his own ghosts. Their story is about how we seek equilibrium, a delicate balance between memory and the unknown, dislocation and homecoming, loss and restoration.
Set against the deceptive simplicity of a small town on the high plains, Angel Fire is a story of mythic proportions. It resonates with the rhythms of tales told for millennia, but they are written anew here, fresh as a Wyoming summer breeze. It resonates with the rhythms of a small town, the blessings of memory, and the pain of loss.
