Rate this:
Part history, part romance, and part actionadventure novel, Sun Going Down follows the fortunes of Ebenezer Paint and his descendants-- rough and tough individuals who are caught up in Civil War river battles, epic cattle drives through drought and blizzards, the horrors of Wounded Knee, the desperation of the dust bowl, and the prosperity of the roaring 1920s. The page-turning plot is peopled by a vibrant, unforgettable cast of characters: a grizzled Mississippi steamboat merchant, two horse-thieving brothers, five Annie Oakley-like sisters who can outride any cowboy, a half-Sioux bride who demands her new family claim her heritage, and a courageous daughter who defies her father and braves the West alone. Throughout their lives, the Paint family must battle elements both internal and external, and learn to live with spirit and wit.

Jack Todd can tell a story. He grabs you in the first couple of pages and I don't want to put it down until I know the whole story. His dialogue is real; his characters are alive; the landscape is another character. I hope he keeps writing so I can keep reading him.
