Summary
In 1903, a mysterious, desperate woman flees alone across the west, one quick step ahead of the law. She has just become a widow by her own hand. Two vengeful brothers and a pack of bloodhounds track her across the western wilderness. She is nineteen years old and half mad. Gil Adamson?s extraordinary award-winning novel opens in heart-pounding mid-flight and propels the reader through a gripping road trip with a twist ? the steely outlaw in this story is a grief-stricken young woman. Along the way she encounters characters of all stripes ? unsavoury, wheedling, greedy, lascivious, self-reliant, and occasionally generous and trustworthy. Part historical novel, part Gothic tale, and part literary Western, The Outlander is an original and unforgettable read
