Publisher Description

This early James Lee Burke classic is available again—featuring Son Holland, the great-grandfather of beloved hero Billy Bob Holland, as he flees a Louisiana prison camp with a Native American woman and a fellow prisoner in tow.

James Lee Burke steps back three generations to reveal the lightning-paced tale of western lawman Billy Bob Holland’s great-grandfather, a fugitive swept up in the proud fight for Texan independence.

Son Holland escaped a Louisiana chain gang—but never intended to kill a prison guard during the breakaway. Terrified for his life, on the run through the bayou with fellow escapee Hugh Allison and a beautiful Indian squaw, Son flees across the river to Texas, where the only chance the travelers have for survival awaits in a violent storm of revolution led by General Houston and James Bowie.

    " A rare foray into Western territory for Burke. I liked it, but I like his Robicheux novels better. "

    " James Lee Burke is one of best writers of our times. He is one of the few writers whose books I will purchase in hard cover because I can't wait for the paperback version to come out. "

    " Very nice western novel set in Texas during wars with Mexico, as a JLB fan of his Robiceaux crime series, this was a nice change and was very well written with some great dialoge exchanges. "

    " Having read all of James Lee Burke's Dave Robicheaux series, I was eager to read something different by the author. I became involved with the story immediately and enjoyed it until the end. "
