Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

Continues the saga of anti-hero E.J. Watson, an entrepreneurial sugar-cane farmer in the Everglades, exile in Indian territory, devoted husband, distant father, and allegedly, a cold-blooded killer.


Review:

"Since, as readers of the previous books, we know the story, the novel sometimes seems to be trudging through old business....But the latter half shifts back toward the eerie energy of the first book....Hearing the story from Watson himself, we know pretty much what he did and didn't do. Yet Matthiessen has Watson tell enough lies to keep us off balance."

Roger Gathman, Salon, 04/13/1999

Book Description: VINTAGE, 2000. PaperBack. Book Condition: New. In BONE BY BONE, Peter Matthiessen speaks in the extraordinary voice of the enigmatic and dangerous E.J. Watson, whom readers first saw, obliquely, through the eyes of his early 20th-century Everglades community in 'Killing Mister Watson.' This astonishing new novel, calling to account the violence, virulent racism, and destructio nof the land that fueled the so-called American Dream, points an accusing finger straight into the burning eyes of Uncle Sam. Here is the bloodied child of the Civil War and Reconstruction who dreams of recovering the family plantation: he becomes the gifted cane planter nearing success on a wilderness river when he gives in fatally to his accumulating demons. 410p.

Watson s voice is an artistic triumph. . .[Bone by Bone] may well come to be regarded as a classic. -- San Francisco Chronicle Book Review In Bone by Bone, Peter Matthiessen speaks in the extraordinary voice of the enigmatic and dangerous E.
