Summary
"'Abbeville' sweeps through the history of late 19th through early 21st century America - among loggers stripping the North Woods bare, at the world's Columbian Exposition of 1893, with French soldiers at the Battle of Verdun, into the abyss of the Depression, and finally toward the new millennium. At the same time it examines life at its most intimate. How can one hold onto meaning amidst the brutally indifferent cycles of war and peace, flood and drought, boom and bust, life and death? In clean, evocative prose that reveals the complexity of people's moral and spiritual lives, Fuller tells the simple story of a man riding the crests and chasms of the 20th century, struggling through personal grief, war, and material failure to find a place where the spirit may repose. An America story about rediscovering where we've been and how we've become who we are today. 'Abbeville' tells the tale of the world in small, of one man's pilgrimage to come to terms with himself while learning to embrace the world around him."--Jacket
