Reviews for The Authentic Death of Hendry Jones
'Great westerns are both mythic and defiantly down to earth, as is this powerful ballet of menace' Irish Times. 'Neider's book is better than any other book on the subject of men, horses and death, except Isaac Babel's Red Cavalry. Not a far-fetched comparison when you consider that Neider - though American-raised - was Odessa-born' Clive Sinclair.
