Journey from Victorian England to the whiskey trading posts of the Old West in this epic award-winning bestseller from the author of The Englishman's Boy. In the late nineteenth century, Englishmen Charles and Addington Gaunt are sent by their father to find their brother Simon, a missionary who has gone missing in the wilds of the American West. In the outreaches of the Montana frontier, the brothers hire a guide-a half Blackfoot, half Scot named Jerry Potts-to lead them further north into the area where Simon was last seen. As the party heads out, it grows to include a journalist, a saloonkeeper, a Civil War veteran in search of love, and a young woman bent on revenge. There's no telling what awaits them . . . "One of North America's best writers . . . A feast of a book." -Annie Proulx, The Globe and Mail (Toronto) "Stuffed with enough goodies to keep us entertained for days." -The New York Times Book Review "Quest and revenge, love and loss converge before the novel's satisfying final twist." -The Boston Globe "The quality of its plotting, vivid characterizations and descriptions and dark humor place it firmly in the company of the likes of Larry McMurtry and Cormac McCarthy." -St. Louis Post-Dispatch
