Dancy is an interesting character for the fact that he is a businessman in a saddle. In this, Best’s sixth yarn about him, he's trying to electrify the West with Edison's invention, which of course raises the interesting point that Edison's direct-current electricity was far less efficient than Westinghouse's alternating current, which of course was the one which prevailed. Dancy's also a writer, which gives him a unique perspective on the rough-and-tumble lifestyle in Colorado which is a microcosm of the West writ large. This is not an insignificant point: writers really do see the world differently, because they're always thinking about how to describe and characterize their experiences so they can frame them for others to read either as fictional or nonfiction.
But don't think Steve is a milquetoast; he's just as easily disposed to get into a gunfight as his partner Sharp. When they see crookedness or injustice, they're ready to dish out the lead. “Crossing the Animus” doesn't have a lot to do with the river for which it's named, and the novel gets off to a slow start as Best creates both an inner and an external environment for the Dancy and Sharp and their women, but once it gets going, it's as good as a movie. As a matter of fact, although different in almost every respect, it's as gol-danged good as "Godless."
