Abstract:

Blakely's sequel to Shortgrass Song (1994) picks up the story of Caleb Holcomb, the cowboy fiddler with a nose for trouble, after the death of his brother, Pete. Caleb's attraction to Pete's widow, Amelia, at first sends him far from her since he doesn't accept his attraction as "proper." But circumstances and his own subconscious longing bring him closer to Amelia. As he moseys home with a series of colorful partners, he ignites and then settles a Holcomb family feud, fights in the infamous Johnson County War, survives an Indian uprising, and sidesteps many a potentially deadly, man-to-man confrontation. Through it all, Caleb maintains his composure, his humor, his music, his loyalty to his friends, and his own moral compass.
