Larry McMurtry recommends

Wolves of Eden (2018)
Kevin McCarthy
"Kevin McCarthy is a fresh voice, and a keen one. This Irish thriller writer has ventured boldly into a new continent and a new history. His place is the American West in the 1860s, when the long, sad carnage was winding its grim way toward Wounded Knee. With this story of profound tragedy, his new readers will be many."

Presidio (2018)
Randy Kennedy
"Randy Kennedy captures the funny yet tragic relentlessness of survival in an unforgiving place. Let's hope he keeps his novelistic cool and brings us much, much more."
thumb
Yellow Woman and a Beauty of the Spirit (2013)
Leslie Marmon Silko
"The essays are lit by the power and the brilliance that...have marked Lesile Silko as one of the finest prose writers of her generation."
