From the publisher: "In this new installment in his acclaimed "Seven Dreams" series of novels examining the repeated collisions between Native Americans and European colonizers, William T. Vollmann tells the story of the epic fighting retreat of the Nez Perce Indians, with flashbacks to the Civil War. ... Written in an original style that uses space to represent physical or emotional distance, so that the printed page becomes a stage with multiple layers of foreground and background, The Dying Grass is a mesmerizing achievement from one of our most important writers."
