Special Order—Subject to Availability

A novel from the dark heart of early twentieth-century Alberta, featuring a new introduction by Dr. Lily Cho.

A bully cattle rancher upends the lives of everyone he encounters and a pandemic makes those lives even more precarious. A full century after its first publication, Cattle remains a story of brutality. A curious Canadian mixture of Hardy and Steinbeck, Cattle is built on the deep contradictions of a settler ideology, asking readers to not look away from the many modes of violence bound up in Canadian history.

Our Throwback books also give back: a percentage of each book's sales will be donated to a designated Canadian cultural organization. Royalties from sales of Cattle benefit Central Alberta Women's Emergency Shelter.
