The Son by Philip Meyer

My Rating: 4.7

This epic novel covers three generations of a Texas family; from the Comanche's in the 1800's to the oil boom in the 20th century

  1. It starts in 1840 with 13 year old Eli McCullough being kidnapped by Comanches after they brutally rape and murder his mother and sister
  2. Peter McCullough is Eli's son and considered a disappointment.
  3. Eli's great granddaughter is Jeanne/JA McCullough and she struggles to succeed in a man's world .  

For anyone who enjoyed Larry McMurtry's Lonesome Dove, you will love this book.
