EffigyBook - 2007
Inspired by the real events of the Mountain Meadows Massacre in 19th-century Utah. Eratus Hammer takes 14-year-old Dorrie as his fourth wife, not to bed her, but to use her skills in taxidermy. Hammer brings her his latest kills, a family of wolves, and for the first time she struggles with her craft, dreaming each night of crows and strange scenes of violence. Outside, a lone wolf prowls, searching for his lost pack.
