After the war, Union veteran Bobby Hale sets his sights on California, but only makes it to Montana. Stumbling around the West, from the Wyoming Territory to the Black Hills of the Dakotas, he finds meaning in the people he meets. This is the story of life in a place where every minute is an engagement in a kind of war of survival, and how two people -- a white man and a mixed-race woman -- can manage to find a pathway to their own humanity.

Quite enjoyed it. Would recommend.

This is a pretty good book. It reminds me of McMurtry at his best, with faithfulness to the language of the times (e.g., no contractions), good eye to the landscape, and a good feel for tension. I want to check out some of his other books now.
