"One of Swarthout'sb best... An absorbing epic of endurance."--Kirkus "No reader should even attempt to guess what happens. Surprise piles upon surprise... Glendon Swarthout has honed writing excellence to a nearly unsurpassable level... A powerful novel... A classic of vivid realism and gripping storytelling."--Associated Press "A finely crafted novel... told with smooth economy... re-creates a seamless and sccurate territorial Nebraska... with character so real the reader resents it when one dies."--Kansas City Star "I tell friends what "The Homesman" is about and their eyes open wide and they can't wait to read it. And that's just the plot. Swarthout puts you "there," in time and place. I love the way he writes."--Elmore Leonard "Totally involving from its very first words... a dangerous journey into the soul, an exploration of the relationships of men and women to each other, to their environments and--ultimately most devastatingly--to themselves."--Los Angeles Times Book Review "I tell friends what The Homesman is about and their eyes open wide and they can't wait to read it. And that's just the plot. Swarthout puts you there, in time and place. I love the way he writes."--Elmore Leonard
