Overview

Paradise Sky by Joe R. Lansdale

A Library Journal Best Book of 2015!

A rollicking novel about Nat Love, an African-American cowboy with a famous nickname: Deadwood Dick.

Young Willie is on the run, having fled his small Texas farm when an infamous local landowner murdered his father. A man named Loving takes him in and trains him in the fine arts of shooting, riding, reading, and gardening. When Loving dies, Willie re-christens himself Nat Love in tribute to his mentor, and heads west.

In Deadwood, South Dakota Territory, Nat becomes a Buffalo Soldier and is befriended by Wild Bill Hickok. After winning a famous shooting match, Nat's peerless marksmanship and charm earn him the nickname Deadwood Dick, as well as a beautiful woman. But the hellhounds are still on his trail, and they brutally attack Nat Love's love. Pursuing the men who have driven his wife mad, Nat heads south for a final, deadly showdown against those who would strip him of his home, his love, his freedom, and his life.

I admit that I am not usually a fan of westerns. However, Paradise Sky has changed my mind. When I read this all I could think of was the incomparable Lonesome Dove. Paradise Sky transported me back to that wonderful experience of reading a work by a master craftsman. Lansdale perfectly describes the western landscape and enables the reader to become an integral part of that environment. Nat Love is our hero. We get to know him well, how he thinks and what he believes. It is as if we are riding along with him encountering people both good and evil. Among the good is his wife. The interaction between Nat and his wife are endearing and truly memorable, as is the rest of this excellent western.

I am a 54 year old constant reader since about the age of 10. This is without a doubt one of the best books I have ever read. I discovered Lansdale about 2 yrs ago, so glad I did. The guy pens a tale like no other. Even his YA books should not be overlooked by you adult readers. I just can' t get enough of this guy. Thank you Mr. Lansdale for sharing your talent
