A Union veteran several times over, Bobby Hale has repeatedly
deserted and re-enlisted under different names to earn the
enlistment bonus. After the civil war, he sets his heart on
California, but only makes it as far as Montana. Now after shooting
the wrong people he has to evade not only the US Army but also the
native population. Against the growing conflict of the Great Sioux
War, Bobby is travelling across the harsh horizon to make it back
to Eveline, a poker-playing wagon owner who has taught him that he
does not have to spend his life alone. Within miles of the woman he
believes can save him, Hale's trigger finger lands him in trouble
again, changing the course of his journey and setting him on a
heart-stopping adventure across the Great Plains. Across ten years
and thousands of hard-won miles, Bobby comes to understand the
wilderness through those he encounters: the pioneers on the wagon
trail who follow the glittering promise of gold; a Crow Brave who
shows him meaning of real freedom and strength; and the militia
men, still carrying the scars of the recent war, whose hatred of
"Injuns" is even stronger than their fear. Far as the Eye Can See
is the story of life in a place where every minute is an engagement
in a kind of war of survival, and of how two people in the midst of
such majesty and violence can manage to find a pathway to their own
