One of a very few National Book Award honorees to be nominated for fiction and nonfiction, Peter Matthiessen creates a curious blend of both in this tragic prequel to Killing Mister Watson and Lost Man's River. An amazing novel in its own right, Bone by Bone caps the trilogy featuring the enigmatic E.J. Watson.

During the Reconstruction Era, Edgar Watson grew up in the South at the mercy of a brutal alcoholic father and a vindictive mother. Witnessing the horrors of slavery, bilked out of his inheritance, and blamed in his youth for a murder he didn't commit, E.J. developed a reputation for violence that preceded him everywhere he went. Finally, it brought him to a tragic and bloody end as his family watched in helpless horror. Borrowing an old local tale about a man who was killed by his neighbors, Matthiessen creates a powerful character. George Guidall's excellent reading brings this moving tragedy home to us with a passion.

    " This is a great read... part fact, part fiction... about life in the Keys in Florida, in the late 1800s. "

    " I'd say zero stars but then you might think I never finished this piece of tripe. Just because someone has a pen and some paper and lots of time doesn't mean he can write. This was poorly written, poorly edited, and devoid of any true interest. I slogged through it our of determination but this is living proof that you don't need to buy a book because you saw it promoted at a half-ass museum in the Everglades. "
