Anmerkungen: "Peter Matthiessen's great American epic -- "Killing Mister Watson", "Lost Man's River", and "Bone by Bone"--Was conceived as one vast mysterious novel, but because of its length it was originally broken up into three books. In this bold new rendering, Matthiessen has cut nearly a third of the overall text and collapsed the time frame while deepening the insights and motivations of his characters with brilliant rewriting throughout ... He has marvelously distilled a monumental work, realizing his original vision" -- dust jacket.
