The Last Shepherd is the powerful story of a young man’s search for an identity that encompasses two cultures and one complex, scattered family.
“This is a beautiful and compelling novel. Its focus on Basque culture, while compelling and authoritative and interesting in itself, also serves as a thematic underpinning for the larger questions that concern the novel. The writing is beautiful throughout, evocative of landscape and weather and animal life. One of the best novels I have read in several years.”
-- Mary Clearman Blew, author of Jackalope Dreams
