THE PAUKTAUG TRILOGY comes to a conclusion with You, Knighted States-part novel of manners, part re-revisionist Western, part high burlesque of New England Transcendentalism, and, like its predecessors, part philosophical-thriller. The novel ranges from nineteenth-century Long Island to the high plains of the American Wild West.

Why has Ellsworth Crabbe rebuilt, in frontier cattle country, an exact replica of his native Long Island village? Why does he increase his herd to unprecedented size, yet refuse to sell a single head? Why does he invite investment in his ranch from Julius Crabbe, an English cousin whom he despises more than anyone in the world?

Readers of That Iron String and Loco-Motive, the first two novels in THE PAUKTAUG TRILOGY, will find that Pauktaug Village has still more eerie revelations in store in You, Knighted States.

"Jack Kohl is a writer of flair and depth. His well-constructed novels and essays reveal a restless mind that can link his life experiences to a wide range of learning. A writer of great promise."

-Michael Johnson, Literary journalist, contributor to New York Times International, American Spectator, International Piano and websites, and
