Description

Guy Vanderhaegh's award-winning novel tells the interwoven stories of a struggling Hollywood screenwriter and a young drifter known as "the Englishman's boy." Spanning two countries, two centuries, and two very different views of history, The Englishman's Boy links the Hollywood of the roaring Twenties with one of the most brutal events of the Canadian West — the Cypress Hills Massacre.
