The sagaMoreREDBONE A literary love story of kindness, betrayal, violence and dark choices. Redmond Bone struggles with abandonment, rejection, cuckoldry, love in many forms, and with a twisted sense of justice, he confronts the stuff of life and death. The saga of Redbone, set in the latter half of the 19th century, finds Bone raised in an orphanage, spending his adolescence with nuns and prostitutes, and experiencing horrors and unexpected love as a kid soldier in the Civil War. Bone finds friendship with the queer and strange Baxter Baxter, bonds uncommonly with a common roan horse, and finds a father figure in the Commodore, who he reluctantly betrays. Bone is forced to make brutal decisions about right and wrong. Is Bone a good man or a bad man? Is he kind or vicious? Is his sense of justice a reflection of his own psychological frailties or the situations he encounters? Bone encounters salt of the earth folk and the worst outcasts and underbellies of humanity. Shanghaied by a ships Captain, dogged by a blood thirsty bounty hunter, imprisoned for defending himself and his dearest friend, and pestered by the uncultivated wife of his boss, Bone also finds love and passion with a good woman, yet seems unable to commit to anything but the easy way out. Redbone is comical, violent, erotic, honest, brutal and romantic.
