Review:

"Ladies and gentlemen, the next Cormac McCarthy...Blake already stands among the best explorers of our lost frontier...The execution of his talent has grown with each book."--"Texas Monthly""Vivid...enthralling...well worth the read...This lively saga barrels along through years of mayhem and outlawry that rival anything found in the annals of the old West."--"San Antonio Express-News""No one writes about blood and guts better than James Carlos Blake. He knows in his bones that violence is at the heart of our American history. He respects that violence."--"Washington Post Book World""Blake is writing books that move like a stampede of mustangs with prose that ripples like Hemingway on steroids..."Red Grass River "is filled with the casual mayhem of the American fringe in an era when outlaws were heroes to those whose own wild spirits were crushed by the Great Depression. Blake is a unique chronicler of hard lives in harder times, and he gets better with each book he writes."--"Rocky Mountain News""A superb and engrossing novel...Blake [is] one of the best and most original writers in America today."--"Milwaukee Journal Sentinel"
