The OutlandereBook - 2008
In 1903 a mysterious, desperate young woman flees alone across the west, one quick step ahead of the law. She has just become a widow by her own hand. Two vengeful brothers and a pack of bloodhounds track her across the western wilderness. She is nineteen years old and half mad. Gil Adamson's extraordinary novel opens in heart-pounding mid-flight and propels the reader through a gripping road trip with a twist the steely outlaw in this story is a grief-struck young woman. Along the way she encounters characters of all stripes unsavoury, wheedling, greedy, lascivious, self-reliant, and occasionally generous and trustworthy. Part historical novel, part Gothic tale, and part literary Western, The Outlander is an original and unforgettable read. This edition will feature a brilliant new introduction by Esta Spalding, poet and screenwriter of the forthcoming film adaptation of The Outlander.
