Description

Having signed up for the US Army in the 1850s, aged barely 17, Thomas McNulty and his brother-in-arms, John Cole, go on to fight in the Indian wars and ultimately the Civil War. Orphans of terrible hardships themselves, despite the horrors they both see and are complicit in, they find these days to be vivid.

Both an intensely poignant story of two men and the lives they are dealt and a fresh look at some of the most fateful years in America's past.

Critiques

"[Barry's] words have a stony allure of the Irish poets and the lyrical pull of an epic storyteller." ( The Boston Globe)
"Sebastian Barry's handling of voice and cadence is masterly. His fictional universe is filled with life, quiet truth, and exquisite intimacy." (Colm Tóibín, author of the Costa Novel Award-winning Brooklyn)

Facinating

The narrator made this a memorable book. A vivid account of American history with disturbing reminders of realities of the times all weaved into the life of Thomas.

Masterpiece of writing

Epic story skilfully read by authentic Irish narrator telling the tale of a tough survivor of the Great Hunger in Ireland, the so called Indian Wars and the American civil war. Highly recommended.
