Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
In the early 1970s, after years of working as a solitary car thief, Troy Falconer comes back to his hometown to help his luckless younger brother, Harlan, search for his wife, who has run away with the little money Harlan had. When they steal a station wagon for the journey, the brothers accidentally kidnap Martha Zacharias, a Mennonite girl asleep in the back of the car. Martha turns out to be a stubborn survivor who refuses to be sent home, so together the unlikely road companions make their way toward the Mexican border, pursued by the police and Martha's vengeful father. Before returning home, Troy had suffered a breakdown and spent his days robbing motel rooms, living under the identities of the men from whom he stole, and chronicling his encounters with fellow down-and-outers and con artists in a journal. Now shackled to Harlan, who carries a heartbreaking secret, and Martha, who has already seen more than her share of trouble, Troy guides the trio across the barren vastness of West Texas toward their inevitable fate.
