The Which Way Tree by Elizabeth Crook read book description online

The poignant odyssey of a tenacious young girl who braves the dangers of the Texas frontier to avenge her mother's death

"When I began to read this book its unique voice appealed to me immediately. Elizabeth Crook has written a beautiful novel with wonderful characters." --Robert Duvall

"A small-scale masterwork, richly detailed and beautifully rendered." --S. C. Gwynne, New York Times bestselling author of Empire of the Summer Moon

Early one morning in the remote hill country of Texas, a panther savagely attacks a family of homesteaders, mauling a young girl named Samantha and killing her mother, whose final act is to save her daughter's life. Samantha and her half brother, Benjamin, survive, but she is left traumatized, her face horribly scarred.

Narrated in Benjamin's beguilingly plainspoken voice, The Which Way Tree is the story of Samantha's unshakeable resolve to stalk and kill the infamous panther, rumored across the Rio Grande to be a demon, and avenge her mother's death. In their quest she and Benjamin, now orphaned, enlist a charismatic Tejano outlaw and a haunted, compassionate preacher with an aging but relentless tracking dog. As the members of this unlikely posse hunt the panther, they are in turn pursued by a hapless but sadistic Confederate soldier with troubled family ties to the preacher and a score to settle.

In the tradition of the great pursuit narratives, The Which Way Tree is a breathtaking saga of one steadfast girl's revenge against an implacable and unknowable beast. Yet with the comedic undertones of Benjamin's storytelling, it is also a timeless tale full of warmth and humor, and a testament to the enduring love that carries a sister and brother through a perilous adventure with all the dimensions of a legend.

Conclusion: We hope you will enjoy this book. We rated it with 5 stars from 5.

    You just don’t find stories like this anymore. I have always been fond of stories about people who lived during that time. I’ve lived in central Texas and could imagine the terrain. I sat in bed reading this story about the panther and felt like a little kid who was half-scared but couldn’t stop reading. If you’ve ever heard a panther scream you’ll understand why. My dad’s family were sharecroppers in Texas during the depression and their house had no screens on the windows. One summer night a wild cat came in and attacked my dad while he was sleeping. He was a young boy. This makes me think of him. He would’ve appreciated this book.
