    Part epic of Texas, part classic coming-of-age story, part unflinching examination of the bloody price of power, The Son is a gripping and utterly transporting novel that maps the legacy of violence in the American west with rare emotional acuity, even as it presents an intimate portrait of one family across two centuries. Eli McCullough is just twelve-years-old when a marauding band of Comanche storm his Texas homestead and brutally murder his mother and sister, taking him as a captive.

    Set in a beautiful but economically devastated Pennsylvania steel town, American Rust is a novel of the lost American dream and the desperation-as well as the acts of friendship, loyalty, and love-that arise from its loss. From local bars to train yards to prison, it is the story of two young men, bound to the town by family, responsibility, inertia, and the beauty around them, who dream of a future beyond the factories and abandoned homes.

    Part epic of Texas, part classic coming-of-age story, part unflinching portrait of the bloody price of power, The Son is an utterly transporting novel that maps the legacy of violence in the American West through the lives of the McCulloughs, an ambitious family as resilient and dangerous as the land they claim. Love, honour, children are sacrificed in the name of ambition, as the family becomes one of the richest powers in Texas, a dynasty of unsurpassed wealth and privilege.

    Eli McCullough ist der erste Sohn der neuen Republik Texas, die am 2. März 1836 gegründet wird. Seine Eltern gehören zu jenen Siedlern, die sich ins Indianerland vorwagen, ein Paradies, das alles verheißt - nur keine Sicherheit. Bei einem Überfall wird seine Familie ausgelöscht. Eli wird verschleppt und wächst bei Indianern auf. Als diese dem Druck der Weißen nicht mehr standhalten können, kehrt er zurück in eine ihm fremd gewordene Welt.
