Houston, TX: Alondra Press, 2008. Paperback edition. Paperback. 315 pp. Octavo. Green covers. NEW. Item #15201
Spanning an epoch from 1845 to the beginning of the 20th century, the story of the Gentile Nicholsons, the Mexican miner Juan Alicante and his son, and their long-running feud with the Mormon Apostle Ephraim Taylor, his son Ezra, and other assorted "prophets" and Danite assassins, The Canyon Chronicles constitutes an astonishingly realistic and totally believable story. So palpable are its characters, so solidly based on what we know in real life, that distinguishing which aspects of the story are historical and which are fictional becomes a task that can be resolved only by consulting the history itself.
