About this title
Toussaint, Montana isn't easily rattled, but an earthquake uncovers an ancient burial ground and the well-preserved bones of a primitive people. When an archeologist is found with a bullet in his back and a dinosaur tooth in his pocket, sometime sleuth Gabriel Du Pré steps in with the wisdom and vision of his Métis ancestors to uncover the answers. But while Indians, archeologists, and entrepreneurs battle for valuable land and the precious remains of a dinosaur, a predator more dangerous than the great T. Rex walks the Montana plains, hungry to strike again...
Fans of Peter Bowen's gloriously unbridled books about Montana's Gabriel Du Pre have cause to celebrate with Thunder Horse. The part-Medis Indian cattle-brand inspector and occasional deputy sheriff gets involved in a story of murder and greed that links the ancient Indian residents of Montana (and an even older inhabitant, Tyrannosaurus Rex--the titular "thunder horse") with a present-day Japanese consortium's plans to turn a bucolic spring into a commercial trout farm. Along the way, Du Pre drives his old pickup too fast along Montana's back roads, drinks gallons of cheap wine with a brace of fascinating friends, plays his fiddle, and resonates with originality and energy. Past Du Pre tales in paperback include Notches, Specimen Song, and Wolf, No Wolf.
