Tracks in the Sand
Western StoriesBook - 2001
Tracks in the Sand was H. A. DeRosso's first published novel, not so much a straightforward narrative as a series of set-piece scenes played out on a surreal, mythical landscape and peopled by desperate individuals -- most notably the protagonist, a hard-case loner named Tom Blackwell -- who lead grim and often doomed lives. This story's nightmare vision, its unrelenting pace, raw violence and stark imagery combine to make compelling reading. It is collected here with four short stories that demonstrate some of the many facets of this talented classic Western writer.
