Description
(Winner of both the Spur Award for Best Western Novel of 1988 and the Wrangler Award for Best Western Novel of 1988) The inspiration for the 2014 film of the same name directed by and starring Tommy Lee Jones, this 1988 novel from the author of The Shootist and Bless the Beasts and Children is a devastating story of early Western pioneers in the 1850s—specifically the women who accompanied their husbands to the frontier, but whose hearts and minds were broken by a life of bitter hardship. A handful of these women need to be taken back East to a sanitarium, and when no man steps up, the job falls to ex-teacher Mary Bee Cuddy, indomitable and resourceful, while the only assistance she can find is from a low-life claim-jumper named George Briggs.

"Totally involving from its very first words ... a dangerous journey into the soul, an exploration of the relationships of men and women to each other, to their environments and—ultimately most devastatingly—to themselves."—LATBR
