5.0 out of 5 stars Up there with his best, 30 May 2008
A welcome new album from James McMurtry and well worth the wait. I would consider it probably his best studio album. Such an under rated performer one can only hope that this release will bring him the credit that he deserves for serving up some of the best americana out there. (Check out the live album!)

3.0 out of 5 stars Not for me thanks, 30 May 2008
Ok so there is great prose and a dark story line but it is so extreme what is the point? I struggled to get into this book and could not make any connections with the characters; it was difficult to understand why they were doing what they were doing and where they were going. The coincidences were also beyond credible. I would give it a bye and read "No country" or "the road"

5.0 out of 5 stars A gem of a book, 25 Dec 2007
I do not know how this book ended up on my wish list...but it was getting close to Chrsitmas and I needn't something to read. This was the first book to arrive; marvellous, beautiful reflective prose, a small insight into the life and perspective of the Native Americans, profound; now I need to wait until after the Christmas break before and I can another book by this author!
