As John Donne said, and Hemingway repeated, “No man is an island.” Sometimes it takes a crisis for people to accept that truth.
For the Keller family, the lesson evolves from a deer hunt which forces them to confront secrets that have separated them from one another and the truth for years.
- Why did Jake Keller rebel against health restrictions after a heart attack and decide he needed one last deer hunt?
- Why had Andy, his son, suddenly quit hunting?
- Who was responsible for the death of Andy’s younger brother, Paul, and why had Paul broken the old man’s rule against drinking on a hunt?
- Why had Janet, Andy’s wife, laughed hysterically at Paul’s funeral?
- What was the source of the enmity between Jake and his boyhood friend, Clyde Grumbine?
- Why did everyone in the valley fear the black buck and why did it seem to haunt the Keller family?
