A Good Man, by Guy Vanderhaeghe: I couldn't get through this which is a shame, because I really liked The Last Crossing. Vanderhaeghe has a gift for the Western genre but it eludes him this time out. The plot takes place just after Custard's defeat at Little Big Horn, and Crazy Horse and the Sioux are headed north in a way that might complicate US/Canada relations. Reasonable premise, but the characters aren't that interesting and the thing takes forever for the plot to go anywhere. Having gotten to 200 pages, I didn't even feel like skimming the rest.
