Sun Going Down by Jack Todd

Sungoingdown

Part history, part romance and part action-adventure novel, Sun Going Down follows the fortunes of Ebenezer Paint and his descendants – rough and tough individuals who are caught up in Civil War river battles, epic cattle drives through drought and blizzards, the horrors of Wounded Knee, the desperation of the dust bowl, and the prosperity of the roaring 1920s. The story is peopled by a vibrant, unforgettable cast of characters: a grizzled Mississippi steamboat merchant, two horse-thieving brothers, five Annie Oakley-like sisters who can outride any cowboy, a half-Sioux bride who demands her new family claim her heritage, and a courageous daughter who defies her father and braves the West alone. Throughout their lives, the Paint family must battle elements both internal and external, and learn to live with spirit and wit.
