"A remarkable odyssey of the American West..."


A misfit in a Mormon frontier town in 1870s Utah, protagonist Clair Martin shows what polygamy feels like from inside the fold. Her stubborn search for identity takes Clair and a small band of mavericks--white, black and Shoshone--beyond the confines of the Utah Territory to the slums of Reconstruction Dixie, and back again. Here, one young woman's life becomes a quiet revolution to untangle what she's inherited from what she really needs.
BARBARA K. RICHARDSON's debut novel, Guest House, launched the first literary Truck Stop Tour in the nation. In Tributary, she claims the land of her Mormon ancestors who settled the northern Salt Lake Valley. Richardson earned an MFA in poetry from Eastern Washington University. Aside from writing, Barbara has renovated four houses, enjoyed Argentine tango, fallen in love with tai chi, helped can the West's finest plum jam, adored conifers, and planted thousands of trees and shrubs for others. Barbara is also an avid environmentalist. She lives in Kamas, Utah.
