Summary
Backlands showcases Michael McGarrity's keen eye for historical detail, awe-inspiring scenery, and the bitter harshness of life on the last vestiges of the twentieth-century frontier West. Michael McGarrity returns with the second installment of his sweeping, richly authentic American West trilogy set in the raw, untrammeled backlands of New Mexico during the Roaring Twenties, the Great Depression, and World War II. Hard Country, the first novel in the Kerney family trilogy, was critically acclaimed for its authentic and gritty realism, its sprawling and engrossing story, as well as its compelling and engaging characters. Backlands continues the story of Patrick Kerney, along with Emma, his ex-wife, and Matthew, their young son, shortly after the tragic battlefield death of CJ, their eldest son, at the end of World War I. Matthew, eight-years-old, scarred by the loss of an older brother he idolized, estranged from a father he barely knows, and deeply troubled by the failing health of a mother he adores, is forced, suddenly and irrevocably, to set aside his childhood and take on responsibilities far beyond his years. When the world spirals into the Great Depression and drought settles like a plague over the nation, Matt must abandon his own dreams to salvage Kerney Ranch. Plunged into a deep trough of dark family secrets, hidden crimes, broken promises, and lies, Matt must struggle to survive The Tularosa Basin, unforgiving, sun-blasted, drought-stricken
