It is upon returning to his hometown of Red Horizon and finding it obliterated that The Peregrine's real journey begins ... a search for answers on the harsh frontier and, ultimately, a hoped-for reunion with any surviving family members. Richard Prosch's writing is spare yet vivid in its descriptions of place and characters and his plot twists take familiar territory and gives it a distinct spin that is all his own. The informative "In Old Nebraska" introduction by Ron Scheer provides a solid foundation for the stories that follow.
The main character, Coburn, weaves a common ribbon through several of the stories in a way that reveals the richness of the character. I alternated between being drawn in by him and being scared of what rules he may ignore. It made for a good read and leaves the door open for more stories which I hope are coming soon!
Some I'd read before, others get missed. To have them together makes for a consistent read that is almost like a novel.
One hopes we haven't seen the last of The Peregrine.
Read these this morning over coffee and appropriate music, the soundtrack of THE BIG COUNTRY.
Worth a look.
Most of the stories feature the character of John Coburn, a sometime gunfighter known as The Peregrine. Coburn is a more nuanced character than you see in many traditional western stories. He brings a depth to the tales that keep them lingering in your mind well after you've finished reading.
Good stuff, much enjoyed.
