This literary Western is told through the eyes of Thomas McNulty, an orphaned Irish Immigrant fleeing poverty and famine. In America he meets the love of his life, John Cole, and together they set out making a life in the Army; first in the Indian Wars, then in the Civil War. Told in lyrical and prose this novel will haunt you long after you have finished it, leaving you to wonder what other beautiful stories we have missed because they do not fit in the dominant narrative.
