The Last Crossing by Guy Vanderhaeghe
In The Last Crossing, Charles and Addington Gaunt leave Victorian England to travel to the American frontier in search of their brother, Simon, who came to Montana country to bring religion to the Indians. Charles is a thoughtful portrait artist and Addington is an egocentric disgraced military captain. They are joined by Lucy Stoveall who is out to avenge her sister's murder, Civil War veteran Custis Straw who loves Lucy, and his loyal friend, Aloysius Dooley. The brothers hire Jerry Potts, a half-Blackfoot, half-Scot to be their guide. As they each struggle with their inner demons, the group wanders through the American and Canadian west in their quests. Canadian author Guy Vanderhaeghe has fashioned a literary western that not only explores the frontiers of new countries, but the depths of men's and women's souls. The Last Crossing has received high praise with the San Francisco Chronicle saying, "Vanderhaeghe gives us countless fantastic experiences in one powerful, beautiful and heartbreaking novel."
