Summary
Set in West Texas after World War II, A Way of Knowing is a drama of the conflict between ignorance and enlightenment, a masterful rendering of a time and place. The story focuses on Elliott Randall, a restive young veteran whose immediate problem derives from his sense of being kept down on the farm after having seen many faraway places. His situation begins to change with the arrival of Grady Haker who tramps through one day and is given a job by Elliot's father. Inevitably the tensions among these three men leads to murder, a miscarriage of jusice and a cataclysmic act of vengance
