The Curlew's Cry is the story of three decades in the life of Pamela Lacey and a Montana town. Descended from pioneers and the daughter of a rancher, Pamela lives according to her own script, and nothing seems to happen as expected. The world beats on-World War I, the influenza epidemic of 1917, the Great Depression-and local fortune rise and fall with the price of beef. For Pamela the fight that counts is defined by a sense of independence and pervasive loneliness, by the twists and turns of love and friendship.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"You are either a Mildred Walker enthusiast or you are missing one of the best writers on the American scene."-Philadelphia Inquirer * Philadelphia Inquirer *
"This is a thoughtful novel, with nuances of meaningful beauty, as well as ruggedness and suspense. For Pamela, one feels that curlew's cry is finally answered when, at the peak of proven self-sufficiency, she responds to the unspoken need of an old friend who might have seemed patently undeserving."-Christian Science Monitor * Christian Science Monitor *
"A quietly told, honestly plotted story filled with careful details and with good descriptions of various aspects of life in the West."-Harriette Arnow, Saturday Review -- Harriette Arnow * Saturday Review *
"A deep understanding of the special quality that characterizes our frontier regions. . .is evident in this period story of Montana. . . .there is a compelling quality that holds reader interest."-Kirkus * Kirkus *
