'Pitch perfect, the outstanding novel of the Year.' Observer

After signing up for the US army in the 1850s, aged barely seventeen, Thomas McNulty and his brother-in-arms, John Cole, fight in the Indian Wars and the Civil War. Having both fled terrible hardships, their days are now vivid and filled with wonder, despite the horrors they both see and are complicit in. Then when a young Indian girl crosses their path, the possibility of lasting happiness seems within reach, if only they can survive.

    A hymn to wonder the human character in all its savagery. This epic tale of love, war and cross-dressing as the American continent is wracked by battle after battle is told with remarkable poise and a recognisably Irish lyricism. Far better than the other historical fiction set in 19th century USA published recently.
