reviewed on + 65 more book reviews


As David Keymer said "IF THE WILD BUNCH WERE A NOVEL, THIS WOULD BE IT. A story about unrepentant criminals in an age when there are still wide gaps in the safety net we call civilization. The book follows the career of the desperado Winter family from its birth in Georgia 1864 (Sherman's march to the sea) through Chicago 1872 (a bloody intervention in a disputed election), Phoenix 1881 (the family's aborted pursuit of Geronimo), Oklahoma 1891 (hired to wipe out an Indian settlement) to California 1900."
