Summary Homesteads dot a mountain high in the Pyrenees, climbing up to a village whose residents have weathered wars and tragedies, knit together by the myths and memories of their shared pasts. Among the village's generations of healers, poets, butchers, and giants, there dwell spirits and sprites who interact with the populace. In one age, lightning strikes a moody farmer, whose foraged goods then feed the ghosts of women accused of witchcraft. The farmer's wife, once a city dweller, has to reconstruct her future in the wake of her loss. The space opened by her mourning is filled by the witches' musings, which themselves give way to the memories of the woodland fauna, and of the mountain itself; later, the farmer's children encounter new challenges as they traipse into the modern age.
