Summary
With poignance and pathos, Schott tells the story of Ben, horse trainer and ranch hand, as seen through the adoring but maturing eyes of his young apprentice, Max. Ben is unlucky in love--his much younger wife keeps leaving him for the rodeo. Max too, has his sorrows--his mother is dying of a brain tumor. But Max has let her die in his heart already, something Ben is unable to do with his errant wife. Schott's characters have talent for faith and fidelity that life doesn't always oblige. The one constant is love's tenacity. Love has these characters doing a dance of indescribable tenderness and courtesy upon a floor of great upset. Though their separate worlds would not, ordinarily, have them connected, they move around one another tightly, intimately. And intimacy, along with the ability to patiently track moments of high emotional dignity and a fastidious avoidance of mere effects, is the hallmark of Schott's work
