Set in a region of northern New Hampshire that in the 1830s declared itself an independent nation, JoshuaHarmons debut novel traces the real and imagined travels of Martha Hennessy, a girl wishing for a life beyond her familys farm. QUINNEHTUKQUT interweaves Marthas story with those of dreamers and drifters whose lives intersect hers: an American soldier scarred by the first World War, a mythical and murderous tramp seeking lost Indian gold, a man haunted by his memories of Byrds expeditions to Antarctica, an industrialist longing to become a woodsman, and an old woman forced to leave her home due to the planned flooding of a valley. A vivid study of the New England landscape, QUINNEHTUKQUT reveals how people inhabit place and how place inhabits people.
