Returning from the horrors of the First World War to recruit volunteers in his remote Appalachian home, Marine Sergeant Hiram Tobit finds the country changed. His mother has committed suicide, dredging up old resentments between Hiram and his father, Sloane. When a gruesome act of violence stuns the insular mountain community, father and son must journey together to see justice carried out while coming to terms with a deeply troubled family history.


“Written in the tradition of Charles Frazier and Ron Rash,Lambs of Men is that most rare of books: a violently beautiful story that is, at heart, a work of prose poetry.”

Mark Powell
