Wanting to understand this enigmatic man, Daniel seeks insight through the particulars of his fathers life-handling his fathers tools and tending to his fathers feeble body.

Through this contact, his fathers mysteries are revealed: his Native-American heritage, his lifelong work as a toolmaker, and his deep and conflicted relationships with his invalid wife and his seven sons. Written quietly, with great force, The Country illuminates the ties of family, the relationships between fathers and sons, and the love that is often hidden, but ever present.
