Those interested in the conflicts between Native Americans and the frontiersmen will be intrigued with both sides of the story presented here.

Glorious: A Novel of the American West

Guinn has parlayed the research he did for his nonfiction title The Last Gunfight (a history of the gunfight at the O.K. Corral) by weaving the early days of the infamous Clanton brothers into the story. Sprinkled with allusions to Mark Twain, President Grant, Cochise, and the Clantons, this first installment in a trilogy will delight historical fiction fans longing for the return of classic Westerns. This entertaining outing is sure to keep the saloon doors swinging for more entries in the genre. [See Prepub Alert, 11/18/13.]
