"A wholly engaging read and an important work of literature"

I received an incredible review for my Spur-winning novel Bound for the Promise-Land -and a great one of the new Wolf Creek mystery western I edited and co-wrote -over at the Western Fictioneers blogspot, from Kathleen Rice Adams.

"Told entirely through Alfred's eyes, the story is brutal in many places and remarkably tender in others. If it isn’t already, the book should be required reading alongside classics by Mark Twain, William Faulkner, and other authors known for the historic and cultural significance of their work.

Impeccably researched and exceptionally written, Bound for the Promise-Land packs an enormous emotional and intellectual punch..."

I am both honored and humbled by this reaction to the work I am proudest of. Read the whole thing HERE... and if you haven't read the book, Check it out.


  1. You have every right to be proud of that novel, Troy. It's still haunting me. Now I'm looking forward to reading GOOD REBEL SOIL. :-)

  2. I'm deeply honored by your endorsement, Kathleen.
