James Culdee, a career US Navy noncom who has served his country with distinction for 20 years, is suddenly and unfairly forced into a disgraceful retirement. Devastated, Culdee retreats into alcoholism until he is rescued by his daughter, Miranda, a charter boat skipper whose sloop, the Seamark, has been stolen. When Miranda learns that the Seamark has been sighted in the dangerous and primitive Flyaway Islands of the Philippines, father and daughter sail off in pursuit, on a voyage that will carry them across the Pacific.
If outdoor literature has its cult novel, Blood Sport is it. Robert Jones has created a new world, in which a mythical river and wilderness become the setting for a father and son journey like no other. In one of the earliest examples of magical realism in an American novel, Jones takes readers deep into the heart of darkness. The intensity, the suspense, and the mind-bending adventure still place Blood Sport in a category all its own.
In the year 1833, two young brothers journey into the Wild West to seek their fortune; little do they know they're embarking on the adventure of their lives. Expecting to stumble upon riches as they make their way westward, sixteen-year-old Dillon Griffith and his older brother Owen instead encounter hardship after hardship in the form of Indian raids, bloodthirsty villains, robbery, and kidnapping. Packed full of riveting action, gore, and vengeance, Deadville paints a thrilling - and historically pristine - picture of life in the Old West.
"For Western fans"
An outrageous outdoor adventure heightened by ribald humor, violence, sex, pitch-perfect dialogue, unforgettably eccentric characters, and a riveting plot.
