Meet the Author

Elizabeth Fackler won the 2009 Best Historical Novel Award for My Eyes Have A Cold Nose and was a finalist for the 2007 Best Historical Novel Award for Bone Justice in the New Mexico Book Awards. Her historical novel on the Lincoln County War, Billy the Kid: The Legend of El Chivato¸ was called “a magnificent achievement in historical fiction” by Western Writers of America. Elmer Kelton said, “She makes the legend live.” The New York Times called her “a fine writer.” Library Journal said, “Her elegant prose is a pleasure to read.” Award-winning author Ed Gorman said, “She has a unique approach to storytelling and speaks in a voice all her own. Equally exceptional in both crime and historical fiction, she makes familiar elements startling and new through the dazzle of her prose and the humanity of her forgiving gaze."

    Very good! I really liked Whit!

    I really liked this book. I thought Emmet was a pain in the butt, but I really liked Whit Cantrell. I thought that was pretty cool how he came back after all those years to be with Claire. This was a really good book and I think that if you like westerns, you'd like Elizabeth Fackler's works.
