AMERICAN BY BLOOD.
Edition: Advance Reading Copy (trade paperback format. )
New York: Simon & Schuster, 2000. The author's first novel, and a finalist for the B&N Discover Award 2000. Based on a family legend about the author's grandfather, this is the story of 3 U.S. Army scouts leading an infantry column who arrive a day late to join Custer at the Little Bighorn and come upon the ruins of the Seventh Cavalry, a trail of blood and corpses defiled by wild dogs and swarms of flies. Dustjacket praise from Larry McMurty and Charles Gaines among others (Gaines called it 'a small masterpiece - as perfectly constructed, beautifully written, and affecting a story of the American West as has been told in our time')
Condition: Fine in illustrated wrappers.
