About the Book

Faber Stories, a landmark series of individual volumes, presents masters of the short story form at work in a range of genres and styles.

‘You have to marry outside your clan,' she said. 'That’s law. All the people we knew were Bird Clan. All the others were gone.'

When Gloria’s great-grandmother, Green Leaf, left her home in the Hiwassee Valley of Tennessee, it was with a man on a stolen horse. She was one of the fugitive bands of Cherokee who’d resisted capture long ago.

Decades later, her family takes Great Mam on a road trip home. But the place that holds the scattered bones of her ancestors is no longer the land she remembers.

Bringing together past, present and future in our ninetieth year, Faber Stories is a celebratory compendium of collectable work.
