This is Doctorow's first novel, and after reading it, you see from the very beginning he was a great writer. It's an ambitious treatment of evil, cowardice, love and family, wrapped up in an great western tale (of the spaghetti type). The Bad Man destroys the town and everyone in it in the first few pages. After that the human spirit thrives (sort of) as a few attempt to rebuild the town and their lives. And look for redemption.

I'm not partial to westerns, this is the first I've read, by force because it was a school assignment. To my suprise, the book was actually quite good and griped my attention enough for me to finish it 3 days.If you've never read a western, this may be a good book for you to try.
