The Last Kind Words Saloon

By turns droll, stark, wry, or raunchy, this peripatetic novel is a bit sketchy at times. The infamous gunfight at the OK Corral brings the novel to a dramatic end and will satisfy many readers who long for more from literary icon McMurtry. [See Prepub Alert, 12/16/13.]

Custer

Strongly recommended for public and school libraries as a masterful and insightful biography, as well as a guide to the key historical sources about Custer. This text will be appreciated by both scholars and Custer enthusiasts, even though theories about whether the general’s nature was inherently heroic, psychotic, or cowardly are not discussed here at any length.
