9780874172195: Swimming Man Burning: A Rip-Roaring Novel Of The American West (Western Literature Series)

A Spur Award Winner In this fast-paced, darkly comic tale of the Old West, Clay Benton, a trapper and trader, is cornered in a deadly Indian ambush and spared by his attackers only to be forced to undertake a most improbable mission. He must guide four Indian warriors to Washington, D.C., where they will attempt to locate the secret of the white man's power. Swimming Man Burning is an uninhibited, off-beat, and heart-breaking novel full of unforgettable characters, humor, and rich ironic action.

About the Author:

The author of Swimming Man Burning.

Review:

"There is wild poetry to Kilpatrick’s writing, rooted in the facts of history and still deeper in the lore and plight of the Indian, that makes Swimming Man Burning more than just another Wild West adventure story." —Publishers Weekly

“This off-beat story has enough twists and rich humor to satisfy the most critical reader while still making some very poignant observations about the Old West and the tragedy that would eventually envelop the Indians, the ill-fated 7th Cavalry and General George Custer.” —Robert F. Walch, Journal of the West, July 1996

Book Description University of Nevada Press, United States, 1993. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. In this fast-paced, darkly comic tale of the Old West, originally published in 1977, Terrence Kilpatrick has taken a sharp, unsettling look at America one hundred years ago - a country still in the making, but only too familiar. Clay Benton, a trapper and trader, is cornered in a deadly Indian ambush and spared by his attackers only to be forced to undertake a most improbable mission. He must guide four Indian warriors - chosen from the most powerful Plains tribes - to Washington, DC , where they will attempt to locate the secret of the white man s power from President Ulysses S. Grant. The four braves - Manuel Choke Breath, Noisy Walking, Little Rabbit, and Gray Owl - prepare themselves for a long, hard battle. Benton prepares himself for an impossible job of babysitting. What happens to them all is something else again. Part slapstick comedy, part inevitable tragedy, and part awesome revelation, Swimming Man Burning is an uninhibited, off-beat and heartbreaking novel full of unforgettable characters, humour, and rich, ironic action.
