The Last Crossing, Paperback Book
4.5 out of 5 (2 ratings)

Description

Charles and Addington Gaunt must find their free-spirited brother, Simon, who has gone missing in the wilds of the American West.

They enlist the services of a guide to lead them on their journey across a harsh and unknown landscape.

This is the enigmatic Jerry Potts, half Blackfoot, half Scottish, who suffers his own painful past. They are joined by Lucy Stoveall, a woman filled with rage and sorrow over the loss of her young sister Madge who was brutally murdered.

She is on a vengeful mission to track down and kill the murderous Kelso brothers.

The group is joined by a jumble of other characters en route, each of whom are forced to confront their own demons. But at the novel's centre is a love story. Vanderhaeghe glides effortlessly through the patois and frontier talk, faultlessly switching from cultured English characters to American roughnecks to Scots-Canadians, and the natural prairie landscape is evoked brilliantly.

I really like this writer. I have read two books by him, The Englishman's Boy (which was a Canadian award winner) and this one. Both were excellent.....historical filled with interesting characters.

Easy to read, plot moved along nicely and some interesting characters. The ambience reminded me very much of The Tenderness of Wolves which was a favourite of mine. Also some shades of St Agnes Stand. Nice ending too.5 days
