Editorial Reviews

Loren D. Estleman
“Few writers can summon forth the agonies and joys of the rites of passage as poignantly as Douglas C. Jones, who in Roman counterbalances that highly personal experience with a broader one of the coming-of-age of the American West…as always, Jones’s vision is as singular as a thumbprint.”
The Dallas Morning News
 “Jones is the brightest light to appear on the Western horizon.”
The Cleveland Plain Dealer
“A master craftsman.”
The Boston Globe
“Our finest prose dramatist of the American West.”

    If you're interested in Western frontier history, this is in the top tier, not to be missed.

    I am only in the first part of the book but it's the fourth book I've read by Douglas C. Jones and I think there's no one better and very few equals. This book, "Roman," is a realistic and sensitive story of a young man's coming of age on the western frontier starting in 1866. So far it's enjoyable, exciting, and educational. I also recommend the other three books, "Elkhorn Tavern," "Barefoot Brigade,"and "Winding Stair."

    I have not received this book yet. It was a pre-order.

    I will let you know (if I get the book).
