Description
Nobody in Freeborn, South Dakota likes the illegitimate son of notorious outlaw Jesse James despite the fact that he is nothing like his pop, until Woody proves, once and for all, that he is a true western hero. Freeborn, the Tale of the Wild West's Most Unlikely Hero, is a novel that combines the comedy and western with rare aplomb. With the ribald humor of Blazing Saddles added to the spirit and whimsy of the Princess Bride, Jeff Peterman has loosened the grip of the old west with a fictional fable of raucous nights that would make Deadwood proud, the grasp of family heritage on the next generation, and the power of love to change a prairie landscape, or at least the non-bandit portion of the wild American west. Freeborn, ... Tombstone and Deadwood, but with a sense of humor. "Nobody likes me. Everybody hates me. I'm gonna eat a worm," ... Jesse James, circa 1878, or so he supposedly claimed. Category - Western fiction. (Hardcover with full book jacket)
