About this Item

A nice, clean, tight, bright copy. No appreciable wear apparent. DJ is equally nice but the price is not clipped but rather neatly torn away. Inscribed on title page "for Ed and Butte and "the Blind Horses" Best, Ralph Beer. " I presume Ed Lahey who wrote "The Blind Horses" with no proof except Lahey came from Butte and schooled in Missoula as was the author. A novel of ranching in Montana. Bookseller Inventory # 16974

About this title


Jackson Heckethorne is drawn to, and must reconcile himself with, the Montana land that has broken his grandfather, his father, and his brother, but has given them all that they value

From Library Journal:

Army veteran Jack Heckethorn, his father, Smoke, and his grandfather, Harley, are longtime Montana ranchers pitted against greedy real estate developers. In this cautionary tale of the New West, Jack, Smoke, and Harley clearly represent the traditional American values of independence and love of the land. Montana is the center of the narrative focusthe state capital of Helena, the mining town of Butte, the Heckethorn ranch and timber land, etc. Reminiscent of E.M. Swift's Wyoming-set, anti-strip mining novel, Each Thief Passing By , Beer's first novel is both well written and socially aware of the dangers besetting the fragile ecology of the West. Highly recommended for public and academic libraries west of the Mississippi and a worthy purchase for libraries elsewhere. James B. Hemesath, Adams State Coll. Lib., Alamosa, Col.
