The Son

An epic multigenerational saga or power, blood, and the taming of the frontier, The Son combines the scope and authenticity of Lonesome Dove with the violence and vision of Blood Meridian. Philipp Meyer, the acclaimed author of American Rust, returns with a gripping saga of the Lone Star State and the settlement of the American West that follows the rise of one formidable family, from the Comanche raids of the mid-nineteenth century to the border wars of the early twentieth century to the oil and mineral booms of the modern era.
