CHARLES NEIDER (1915-2001) was a Jewish refugee from Odessa who became a scholar of the works of Mark Twain. The Authentic Death of Hendry Jones was the basis of the only film directed by Marlon Brando, One-Eyed Jacks.
'Neider's book is better than any other book on the subject of men,
horses and death, except Isaac Babel's Red Cavalry. Not a
far-fetched comparison when you consider that Neider - though
American-raised - was Odessa-born' -- Clive Sinclair
'Great westerns are both mythic and defiantly down to earth, as is this powerful ballet of menace' * Irish Times *
