"In this beautifully written and powerful memoir, author Craig K. Collins ushers readers down a remarkable path--one that wends from the American frontier to present-day suburbia. Along the way, he explores the meaning of a history--of his family's and his country's--that is infused with the culture of the gun. Stops include an Indian massacre at Bad Axe, the siege of Vicksburg, the slaughter of buffalo in Montana, and the discovery of gold in a remote Nevada canyon. The story begins on a hunting trip Collins took with his father and brothers in the early '70s, when he was accidentally shot with a high-powered deer rifle at the age of 13 near the top of an isolated peak in northeastern Nevada.

He recalls friends--past and present--whose lives have been forever shattered or altered by the explosive force of a bullet"--
