Description
In this final part of his epic trilogy of the West—following The Last Crossing and The Englishman's Boy—Governor General's Award winner Guy Vanderhaeghe returns to the North American frontier in its closing days. Wesley Case, a former soldier and the son of a Canadian lumber baron, sets out into the untamed borderlands between Canada and the United States, hoping to escape his past and settle on a Montana cattle ranch. Working as a liaison between the Canadian and U.S. armies, both trying to contain angry Sioux warriors, Case's plans for a peaceful life are further complicated when he falls in love with the recently widowed Ada Tarr—and earns the enmity of her admirer Michael Dunne.

"Vanderhaeghe is often compared to Larry McMurtry, and rightfully so, for his muscular prose readily conveys not only the nuanced love story but also the rugged beauty of the western landscape and the chaotic battle scenes that haunt his protagonists."—Booklist

"There are, characteristically, bountiful and varied pleasures to be had in A Good Man.... Vanderhaeghe's descriptions of the natural world [are] often as striking as Cormac McCarthy's.... [The novel] caps a towering achievement worthy of celebration as loud as our humble voices can declare."—Globe and Mail (Toronto)
