Staff Reviews


"It’s a Texas book for the Texas heat. It’s a grand adventure. My
favorite western. It’s beautiful. It’s tragic and it’s epic in scope.
It’s the holy grail of Texas tales, steeped in Lone Star mythos.
Goodnight and Loving would be proud to know what they had spawned."

— Bosco

"Because Texas. That's why. One of the greatest friendships in all of literary history is laid out in perfection. We are loved as we accept those we love for who they really truly are. Beautiful."

— Bosco
