"A vivid, graphic, harrowing tale of wild men and bad blood."
Kent Haruf


Author Rick Bass has won the Pushcart Prize and the O. Henry and PEN/Nelson Algren Awards for his short fiction. With The Diezmo he crafts a stirring novel that sheds light on an extraordinary but little-known episode of Texas history.
