Tom Horn by William Wiard( visu )

When he rode into Wyoming in 1900, Tom Horn was already a legend. He was as successful at wiping out rustlers as he had been at everything else he'd tried. But the West was changing, and a free spirit like Horn was a liability to the men who had hired him. Based on the true story, Tom Horn presents a harsher, less romantic vision of the West, but one that remains true to the frontier's raging spirit

Driving on the rim by Thomas McGuane( Computer File )
4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 265 libraries worldwide
The unforgettable voyager of this dark picaresque is I.B. "Berl" Pickett, M.D., whose die was probably cast the moment his mother thought to name him after Irving Berlin. Other insults piled on apace thereafter: the spasms of Pentecostal Sunday worship; the social debilitation of following his parents' itinerant rug-shampooing business; the erotic initiation at the hands of his aunt. It's hard to imagine what would have become of him had he not gone to medical school
Blood knots a memoir of fathers, friendship, and fishing by Luke Jennings( Computer File )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 207 libraries worldwide
Blood Knots is about angling, about great fish caught and lost, but it is also about friendship, honour and coming of age. As an adult Jennings has sought out lost and secretive waterways, probing waters 'as deep as England' at dead of night in search of giant pike. The quest, as always, is for more than the living quarry. For only by searching far beneath the surface, Jennings suggests in this most moving and thought-provoking of memoirs, can you connect with your own deep history
