About this title

Synopsis:

The raunchy, picaresque memoirs of Yellowstone Kelly--Indian fighter, adventurer, scout, and scoundrel--chronicles his frontier odyssey, secret missions for General Grant, and the colorful people he encounters along the way

From Library Journal:

Reprising the main character from his earlier novel Yellowstone Kelly (Jameson Bks., 1988), Bowen has written a Western which most readers will find to be one or all of the following: illogical, blasphemous, insensitive, and awash with gratuitous violence. Its saving grace is its ribald humor. Reminiscent of Thomas Berger's Little Big Man ( LJ 11/15/64), this bildungsroman of the frontier is, however, written without Berger's perception. Bowen, through main character Luther Kelly, attempts to champion the Native American, but such moments are overwhelmed by the rest of this disjointed tall tale. A better novel encompassing the plight of the Plains Indian is G. Clifton Wisler's Lakota ( LJ 6/15/89). Not an essential purchase.
