Introduction by Terry Tempest Williams
Afterword by T. H. Watkins
Called a “magnificently crafted story . . . brimming with wisdom” by Howard Frank Mosher in The Washington Post Book World, Crossing to Safety has, since its publication in 1987, established itself as one of the greatest and most cherished American novels of the twentieth century. Tracing the lives, loves, and aspirations of two couples who move between Vermont and Wisconsin, it is a work of quiet majesty, deep compassion, and powerful insight into the alchemy of friendship and marriage.

    Great story with a "big drop" ending.

    The power of Stegner's words nearly overwhelms me. I have read this book most autumns for the last decade. I'm not sure why, except that it is congruent with my mood as I prepare to hunker down for winter. I first found it at a thrift store somewhere in the Midwest amidst travels as a folksinger, and it carried me through many lonesome nights on the road. The story may not be true, but it certainly is real.

    I like the book very much. Beautiful descriptions. A story of people's friendships. It gave me a lot to think about in my own life.
