In The Pale Light of Sunset , Maynard's stories take us on his sometimes harrowing journey from the hills of West Virginia to a mountaintop in Santa Fe, New Mexico where we learn along with him his life lessons.

About This Item
Indeed, The Pale Light of Sunset is just such a narrative of the mind and spirit for our own time. If rural West Virginia is the point of departure and emotional keystone throughout the book, Maynard's internal and external geography is the Great Wide Open of both the planet and the human heart. This book is filled with surprise, humor sometimes riotous, at other times wry and sly , full-bore old fashioned adventure, violence, mystery, and, finally, tenderness.
Lee Maynard is teaching us to pay attention, to live the moments when they come, and savor them forever as the reasons that we are here.
