If you like other Burke's novels, which are not for everyone, you should enjoy this Hackberry saga thick with action in the late 1910's when the 6'8" big man fought one powerful arms dealer who had kidnapped his son for a ransom, with help from three extraordinary women. The clear message I got was characters of men/women were products of their past experiences. Can't argue with that. Burke has just turned 79 and still able to churn out his unique brand of southern old time prose that are a joy to chew on (see quotes.)
