Publisher's Summary

Bobby Hale is a Union veteran several times over. After the war, he sets his sights on California, but only makes it to Montana. As he stumbles around the West, from the Wyoming Territory to the Black Hills of the Dakotas, he finds meaning in the people he meets - settlers and native people - and the violent history he both participates in and witnesses. Far as the Eye Can See is the story of life in a place where every minute is an engagement in a kind of war of survival, and how two people - a white man and a mixed-race woman - in the midst of such majesty and violence can manage to find a pathway to their own humanity.

Robert Bausch is the distinguished author of a body of work that is lively and varied, but linked by a thoughtfully complicated masculinity and an uncommon empathy. The unique voice of Bobby Hale manages to evoke both Cormac McCarthy and Mark Twain, guiding readers into Indian country and the Plains Wars in a manner both historically true and contemporarily relevant, as thoughts of race and war occupy the national psyche.

    "A Dystopian novel with an awesome plot!"

    One of the most entertaining books I have read or heard in years. When it's over, you feel as if you were along for the entire ride, which runs the gamut of every emotion. Robert Bausch is a great writer, who spins this adventurous yarn so well that I felt as if I had seen an Oscar winning movie by the time I got to THE END.

    "Great Book"

    Terrific human story, read well. It's really a love story, a fine love story, set in a difficult country, and a difficult time.
