He longs for wildness, freedom, hope and vigour. He leaves Harvard and sets out for the West to discover a new way of living.

Would recommend this to anyone who enjoyed Stoner. It is an unsentimental and bleak description of the futility of buffalo hunting, but it is beautifully written, spare and gripping.
