"An absolutely first-rate account of the rambunctious life and times of the Reconstruction years in Texas...an enthralling era of derring-do which finds its perfect chronicler in Mr. Shrake. His novel has all the vigor and excitement of a war Apache in full cry." - George Plimpton "Shrake writes in a hard-driving, ironic style of extreme naturalism, giving a very different view of McGill’s ‘sainthood’ and providing a colorful description of the old West." - Publishers Weekly "The high adventure in Mr. Shrake’s book is interwoven with fascinating material about the lives and customs of the Indians." - New York Review of BooksAbout the Author:
Edwin "Bud" Shrake has written 10 novels, including CUSTER'S BROTHER'S HORSE, BLESSED MCGILL, BORDERLAND, AND STRANGE PEACHES. Movie credits include TOM HORN, KID BLUE, and SONGWRITER. Shrake lives in Austin, Texas.
