'I will not live amongst you' are the only words Abigail Buwell will speak when she arrives at Fort 2881. She has been taken from her life among the savages and returned against her will to 'civilisation' - the last military outpost on the hellish frontier's edge in the aftermath of the American Civil War. Alone and heavily pregnant, she is watched day and night by her beloved blue roan horse. Major Cutter, the commander into whose hands Abigail is delivered, is crushed by the war and its aftermath and haunted by the ghost of a boy from his past. As the fort descends into madness and chaos, and Abigail's resistance to redemption continues, Cutter's fate and that of his silent charge are bound together.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"An exquisitely imagined novel of memory and desire, beautifully achieved, as tense as it is elegaic. This is a book that keeps faith with the landscape in which it is set, its vast spaces, great silences and strangeness" -- Joseph O'Connor, author of Star of the Sea
"She reminds the reader of Annie Proulx and Cormac McCarthy... visionary and extraordinary... This heartfelt novel leaves a deep and singular impression... the book's language is rich, discriminating and unconstrained" -- Hilary Mantel * Guardian *
"A captivating novel that looks deeply at memory and place... Blue Horse Dreaming is profound. It explores deep human emotions and the impact history has on everyday life" * Aesthetica *
"'Remarkable and utterly original ... Time and again, Wallace finds the one right word to lift an otherwise ordinary sentence into art'" * New York Times Book Review *
