September Book of the Month: The Trackers, by Charles Frazier
Our Book of the Month is The Trackers, by Charles Frazier
A wealthy rancher fears that his wife’s earlier marriage will scuttle his plans to become a US Senator. A brilliant noir that captures the American West during the Depression — the ethos; cowboys; ranch hands; riding the rails; the physicality; the violence and the politics. Some of it seems almost current.
Frazier has long been regarded as a storyteller par excellence. His wonderful Cold Mountain won the US National Book Award in 1997.
