John Davis has a "dull aching sense of missing out, of not getting anywhere." There must be millions like him, he thinks. His relations with his wife, Serena, are shallow and unsatisfying. In the late 1930s, he tries to rekindle their marriage by bringing her to a special place from his past - the Montana mountains. He is chagrined when she asks other people to join them on the camping trip. Plans are further disrupted by a catastrophe - a forest fire that rages uncontrolled for three days. Forced to reach outward to others in this crisis, the members of the party ultimately have to face themselves as well. Unless the Wind Turns is fast-moving and psychologically nuanced

This novel, which is a story about a young clergyman and his wife who travel to the upper Missouri River in Montana Territory to serve as missionaries to the Indians, was published in 1970 by Harcourt Brace Jovanovich. Walker's novel was not received as well as she would have liked, suggesting that the additional material not included in the finished copy of the book would have improved it.

The collection consists of Walker's manuscript typewritten draft of the novel, with extensive editorial markup annotations, and the galleys of the published work
