When Paul suggests one last hunting trip to Echo Canyon, his son Justin accepts, hoping to get things right with his father, and he agrees to bring his own son, Graham, along. As the weekend unfolds, Justin is pushed to the limit by the reckless taunting of his father, the physical demands of the terrain, and the menacing evidence of the hovering presence of bear.
Annotation:
A web of complex relationships forms the basis for Benjamin Percy's suspenseful and thought-provoking novel, THE WILDING: the relationship between fathers and sons, between husbands and wives, and between humanity and nature. When his father suggests they go on a hunting trip together before Echo Canyon gets ripped apart by developers, Justin Caves sees it as a last-ditch effort to repair their damaged relationship. He brings his young son along on the outing, but things soon get difficult. Between the emotional strain of dealing with his aggressively critical father and amplifying anxiety about his son's safety, Justin also begins to feel like they are the ones being hunted. Nature and man seem out to get them. Percy cuts between these men's adventure, which grows more harrowing by the minute, with scenes of his wife back home whose is on the brink of an affair.

Praise

"A taut plot and cast of deeply flawed characters--Justin is a masterwork of pitiable wretchedness--will keep readers rapt as peril descends and split-second decisions come to have lifelong repercussions. It's as close as you can get to a contemporary DELIVERANCE." (starred review) 07/26/2010

"Percy's novel unabashedly invites comparison to James Dickey's DELIVERANCE...but it stands on its own with its glittering prose...." - Cameron Martin 12/12/2010
