BY THE AUTHOR OF STONER

Will Andrews is no academic. He longs for wildness, freedom, hope and vigour. He leaves Harvard and sets out for the West to discover a new way of living.

In a small town called Butcher’s Crossing he meets a hunter with a story of a lost herd of buffalo in a remote Colorado valley, just waiting to be taken by a team of men brave and crazy enough to find them. Will makes up his mind to be one of those men, but the journey, the killing, harsh conditions and sheer hard luck will test his mind and body to their limits.

Review:

"His Stoner is the book that has garnered the attention, but I prefer this earlier take on the Western genre...it has some gory, visceral passages that are not for the faint-hearted" (Kate Atkinson Irish Times)

"Shorn of sentimentality or decoration, the events and places [Williams] describes begin to feel inescapable, permanent, and rivetingly dramatic. This is language that seems to be carved into stone – into mountains... Stoner showed us a writer who had written a great book. To those of us who didn't know already, Butcher's Crossing reveals John Williams to be more than that: forgotten writer as he was, he was unquestionably also a great one" (Archie Bland Independent)

"Superbly understated" (Rosemary Goring Herald)

"One of the finest books about the elusive nature of the West ever written... It’s a graceful and brutal story of isolated men gone haywire" (Time Out)

"Harsh and relentless yet muted in tone, Butcher’s Crossing paved the way for Cormac McCarthy" (New York Times Book Review)

Book Description:

The author of Stoner delivers something completely different but equally unique, skewering romantic notions of the Wild West with a brilliant, brutal tale of buffalo hunters that reverberates with understated power.
