More About Lost Nation by Jeffrey Lent
 
 
 
Overview
Lost Nation is "a powerfully written novel that explores a human condition as twisted and hidden as the tangled northern wilderness" (The Boston Globe). Impelled by sensuous prose and atmospheric storytelling, Lost Nation delves beneath the bright, promising veneer of early-nineteenth-century New England to unveil a startling parable of individualism and nationhood. The novel opens with a man known as Blood who has a secret past that has scorched with his soul. He sets forth to establish himself as a trader, hauling with him Sally, a sixteen-year-old girl won from the madam of a brothel in a game of cards. As plots unravel and violence escalates, two young men of uncertain identity appear, and Blood is forced to confront dreaded apparitions of his past, while Sally is offered a final escape. In prose both lucid and seductive, Lost Nation carries us deeply into human and natural conditions of extreme desolation and harrowing hardship, but also the relentless beat of hope and, finally, the redeeming capacity of love.
