No jacket, a few light spots to boards, top page ridge lightly foxed. 1979 Hard Cover. 252 pp. The Sacred Hoop is a unique experience in historical fiction. From a retelling of Genesis to the saga of the Steam God (the Transcontinental Railroad) in nineteenth-century America, Bill Broder has illuminated in fiction the larger chronicle of humankind's changing relationship with the Earth, the Gods, and the Universe.
