Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

THE BIG SKY is the first of A.B. Guthrie's epic adventure novels of America's vast frontier. It is a story as great as the land that inspired it, sweeping westward from Kentucky, up the Missouri River into Indian Country. Towering above the novel is Guthrie's unforgettable hero, Boone Caudill, a true mountain man driven by a raging hunger for life and a longing for the blue sky and brown earth of the big, wild places. A legend before he turns 20, Boone becomes a powerful White Savage, an untamed life force that only one woman, the beautiful daughter of a Blackfoot chief, would dare to love. It is this magnificent spirit that Guthrie celebrates with his vivid storytelling--the glory of the bigness, the wildness, the freedom and undying dream of the West.

MonikerLewinsky, January 13, 2011 (view all comments by MonikerLewinsky)
The Big Sky" by AB Guthrie was the best book I read in 2010. I picked it up from a bargain table, never having heard of the book or its author, but it grabbed me from the first few pages and never let me go. I am still thinking about the unforgettable characters and breathtaking landscapes they lived in. The closest novel I can compare it to is Lonesome Dove, by Larry McMurtry. I highly recommend it to all BOOKLOVERS.
