An authority on the American West, award winner Loren D. Estleman has been called the most critically acclaimed author of his generation. In Journey of the Dead, Spanish alchemist Franciso de la Zaragoza—more than a hundred years old and known as a wise man and healer—and Sheriff Pat Garrett, the man who killed Billy the Kid, meet. The men share their stories, evoking the wonder of the Old West as they wrestle with possible answers to their deepest questions.
“[Estleman’s] best yet. Enthusiastically recommended.”—Library Journal
