Description
(2008 National Book Award Winner) Originally published in three books as the Watson trilogy (Killing Mister Watson, Lost Man's River, and Bone by Bone), Peter Matthiessen's epic saga of the Florida frontier and the legendary Everglades sugar planter and outlaw E.J. Watson is here distilled into one stunning, page-turning masterpiece.

"Magnificent and capacious.... I'll just say right here that the book took my sleeve and like the ancient mariner would not let go. Matthiessen has made his three-part saga into a new thing.... Finally now we have these books welded like a bell, and with Watson's song the last sound, all the elements fuse and resonate.... A breathtaking saga."—LATimes

"Shadow Country is altogether gripping, shocking, and brilliantly told, not just a tour de force in its stylistic range, but a great American novel, as powerful a reading experience as nearly any in our literature. This magnificent, sad masterpiece about race, history, and defeated dreams can easily stand comparison with Ralph Ellison's Invisible Man and Robert Penn Warren's All the King's Men. Little wonder, too, that parts of the story of E.J. Watson call up comparisons with Dostoevsky, Conrad, and, inevitably, Faulkner. In every way, Shadow Country is a bravura performance, at once history, fiction, and myth—as well as the capstone to the career of one of the most admired and admirable writers of our time."—NYReview of Books
