A brilliant novel... Flawlessly authentic, beautifully captured *
Haunting and earthy, a deeply felt tale of love and loss... Tom Spanbauer's wild west is the hurly burly of the mind. He takes us into territories where few of us would ever dare to go * Publishers Weekly *
This brave, original, ribald, funny, heartrending fable about the Old West . . . is a book as bright as it is dark, full of fictional and philosophical pleasures, a quirky, unsettling look at American history and a vision quest in the grand old tradition * Los Angeles Times Book Review *
The miracle of the novel is that it obliges us to rethink our whole idea of narration and history and myth. . . . Spanbauer captures the music of the mind and the body * New York Times Book Review *
