Hard Times is the name of a town in the barren hills of the Dakota Territory. One day, a reckless sociopath who wanders the West killing, raping, and pillaging comes to this little town. By the time he is through and has ridden off, Hard Times is a smoking ruin. The de facto mayor, Blue, takes in two survivors of the carnage—a boy named Jimmy and a prostitute named Molly, who has suffered terribly—and makes them his provisional family. Blue begins to rebuild Hard Times, welcoming new settlers, while Molly waits with vengeance in her heart for the return of the outlaw.

Here is E. L. Doctorow’s debut novel, a searing allegory of frontier life that sets the stage for his subsequent classics.
