Zimmer's second novel fulfills the promise of his first, Sundown. His style is neat and spare, his characters people to be concerned about, and the setting one of great interest to readers of Western history--Missouri during the Civil War. A pleasing book about an unpleasant subject--the ugliness of war of any kind.
Dust and Glory
Jesse Ross was just a kid when the Yankee invaders raided his family's isolated Missouri farm, but before that night is over, he'll be branded a traitor and murderer. With nowhere else to turn, he joins Josiah Slaughter's Company of Missouri Rangers, and by the time the War is over, he'll not only be a man -- he'll be a legend.
