Publisher's Summary

Mavis Gallant Award-winning author Jack Todd—an American expat living in Canada—pens an epic work of historical fiction based partly on his own relatives. Spanning the Civil War to the Roaring Twenties, Sun Going Down details three generations of the Paint family as they work to find their places on the untamed American frontier.

Critic Reviews

“This is an impressive, grand work that wants to sit next to Lonesome Dove [and] even mentioning them in the same breath should be telling enough.”(Booklist

I didn't want the story to end

Great story! 3 generations of hard working Americans struggling to survive against the pre-civil war, post civil war, and post WWI challenges of life. Experience the toughness of the American river boat life during the Civil war. Experience the hard life of the cowboy, post civil war. Experience the tough struggle of Homesteader's as influenced by harsh weather, poverty, physical toughness, inflexible family values, unimaginable courage and religious fortitude. Enjoy the early American spirit that loved the fruit of the simple life: fresh air, a good roof over your head, a good meal on a regular basis and a loyal partner to build a family during a tough frontier time in American history. Lot's of action.
