The Fireweed Turns by Katharine MacDaid


The Fireweed Turns takes place one summer in Alaska. Katharine MacDaid rented a jeep, bought a sleeping bag and a road map and set off with some half remembered place names in a notebook. Alone in the landscape, MacDaid was both in awe and fearful of the desire that drove her.


Made to resemble a storybook, The Fireweed Turns considers the psychological power of Landscape. It is a story of shame and desire, about what is hidden and what is revealed.
