 The Sisters Brothers

by Patrick deWitt

"When a frontier baron known as the Commodore orders Charlie and Eli Sisters, his hired gunslingers, to track down and kill a prospector named Herman Kermit Warm, the brothers journey from Oregon to San Francisco, and eventually to Warm's claim in the Sierra foothills, running into a witch, a bear, a dead Indian, a parlor of drunken floozies, and a gang of murderous fur trappers. DeWitt has produced a genre-bending frontier saga that is exciting, funny, and, perhaps unexpectedly, moving." -- Publishers Weekly
