Recommended for: Hmmm

Crazy tale of two STAMPER brothers and a western town which dont seem big enough.....straight up drama...bros f*ing stepbro's ma's....

Told through the eyes of Leland Stanford Stamper (named Stanford cuz his ma was from Stanford) who was the runt of the west..went back east with ma..came back a large man to help his bro and make some revenge....

Interesting follow up to One flew over a Cukoo's nest...

Tale which points out many questions....self efficient vs community animals....stubronness....youth mental afflictions....intersting read...Parallels to "The Prodigal Son" of classic french lit...
