Strange as it may seem, I took comfort from this wilderness story which though small in stature, is big on impact. Despite knowing Cyrus Bellman is on a 'fool's errand', I wanted to believe in him and his enterprise. It’s a story full of wonder too - from the vast and changing landscape to an unlikely hero I didn't spot. Twisting and turning, it gathers pace as it heads towards a heart-stopping conclusion. Not a book I will instantly forget.
