"Jackpine Savage" describes a rare and hearty breed of people in places like International Falls, Minnesota, Bob Shaw's hometown. The tough winters and hard landscape of the northern borderland shaped Shaw's darkly humorous worldview, and inspired these twelve short stories. Collected here are his fictional confessions, spanning from the 1930’s into the not-so-distant future.
