Synopsis: In Billy Sunday, his second novel published in the United States, Jones turns his ambitious imagination to the American psyche at the end of the frontier period. Three historical figures stand at center stage: Frederick Jackson Turner, author of the famous book of essays The Frontier in American History; Charles Van Schaick, the photographer Michael Lesy made famous in his surreal and haunting book Wisconsin Death Trip; and Billy Sunday himself, an orphan, undertaker's assistant, and onetime professional baseball player who became a charismatic evangelist in the 1890s. Their paths cross during the steamy summer of 1892, when a girl's body is discovered in the woods beside a dreamy lake on the very edge of civilization. This terrible moment becomes the fulcrum for Jones's compelling and tragic meditation on the end of an era, as well as of an ethos, in our history.

Review: Australian writer Rod Jones bends history at one of its unique crossroads to create this intriguing work of historical fiction. As both frontier life and the 19th century wind down, Jones fashions a meeting in the Wisconsin woodlands between soon-to-be-famous evangelist Billy Sunday, essayist Frederick Jackson Turner, and photographer Charles Van Schaick. As the characters' histories unfold, their intersection stands as a metaphor for the closing of one century and the dawning of another. Interested readers may want to look for other books on Billy Sunday, including Billy Sunday, Baseball Preacher, and Preacher: Billy Sunday and Big-Time American Evangelism.
