Tehano: A Novel
With vivid and authentic detail and a storm of narrative power, Allen Wier's Tehano brings together historical and imagined events, giving readers a sense of the final years of the nineteenth century - a time both brutal and majestic - that spawned our present time. The disparate narrative skeins are collected through the efforts of Gideon Jones, a westering picaro who sets down his adventures and those of the people whose path he crosses.
