Praise
""Mr. Watson...dips into the earlier lives of the characters assembled in Montana 1848, might seem to signal the author's unwillingness to leave the scene of his success. But this impulse on his part - to tell the story behind the story and to stick with what works - is precisely what makes Justice as good as it is."
"A writer whose work is worthy of prizes."
"A worthy collection, filled with rugged prose sometimes as biting as a northern plains wind, the next page as inviting and lyrical as a well-stoked wood stove....Watson writes of people universal in their flaws and virtues."
From the Publisher
Annotation The action in this novel precedes that of "Montana 1948", which features many of the same characters.
Editors Note The author of the prize-winning national bestseller Montana 1948 returns with a stunning prequel of the memorable Hayden clan's early years.
Editors Note 2 Larry Watson's bestselling novel Montana 1948 was acclaimed as "a work of art" (Susan Petro, San Francisco Chronicle), a prize-winning evocation of a time, a place, and a family. Now Watson returns to Montana 1948's vast landscape with a stunning prequel that illuminates the Hayden clan's early years and the circumstances that led to the events of Montana 1948.In Montana, the Hayden name is law. For the Hayden boys, Wesley and Frank, their legacy carries an aura of privilege and power that doesn't stop at the Montana border, even when an ill-fated hunting trip makes them temporary outlaws. But what it means to bear the name is something each generation must discover for itself. From Julian, the hard-bitten and blustery patriarch, to Gail, Sheriff Wesley Hayden's spirited wife and moral compass, Larry Watson gives breath and blood to a remarkable family's struggles and rewards, and opens an evocative window on the very heart of the American West.
Editors Note 3 Rendered outlaws by an ill-fated hunting trip, brothers Wesley and Frank Hayden pursue a legacy shared by each generation of their family, from hard-bitten patriarch Julian through Gail, a sheriff's spirited wife. Reprint.
