Restless in the Wilds of Eastern Idaho: David Kranes’s ‘The Legend’s Daughter’
BY CHRISTOPHER CONNOR
POSTED ON JULY 29, 2013 IN FICTION
From rainbow trout jumping in the Salmon River to watering holes on the edge of McCall Lake, each of the ten stories in author and playwright David Kranes’s The Legend’s Daughter (Torrey House Press, 172 pages) transports the reader to the wilderness of Eastern Idaho. While Kranes renders a common setting in each story, the collection is not simply a detailed portrait of Idaho, but an examination of the lives of restless people seeking to escape from their lives and find peace.
