John Hough Jr recommends
The Return of Kid Cooper (2018)
"The Return of Kid Cooper can claim a secure place in the canon of literature of the American West. Brad Smith's tale of old-fashioned courage and western justice is reminiscent, in its high drama, wit, and splendid idiosyncrasy, of Lonesome Dove. I was reminded also of Annie Proulx's laconic Wyoming stories, and that most iconic of Western loners, Shane."
The Moon Always Rising (2020)
Alice C Early
"A rich and intelligent novel written with grace and style."
