Books Info:

Goat Mountain free pdf Three generations of one family - a grandfather, father and son - and a family friend set off on an annual trip to their hunting grounds: 640 remote acres along one side of a mountain. A wild and idyllic spot, miles from anywhere. But all is not as it should be. Upon arrival, they spot an intruder, a poacher, lurking by their cabin. 'Come and take a look' the father says. His son peers through the rifle scope till he spots the man, steadies his breath, lines up the crosshairs...Set over the course of one hot and claustrophobic weekend, Goat Mountain is the story of a family struggling to contend with a terrible crime, its repercussions and the slow descent into hell. Dark, disturbing and unbearably tense, this is the startling new novel from David Vann, 'one of the best writers of his generation' (Le Figaro).
