Publisher's Summary

The time is 1902. The setting, eastern Oregon. Magic Child, a 15-year-old Native American girl, wanders into the wrong whorehouse looking for the right men. She finds Cameron and Greer, two gunmen taking a timeout from the game after an aborted job in Hawaii. Their violent past doesn't concern Magic Child. She wants them to kill a monster for her, one she says lives in the ice caves under the basement of Miss Hawkline's yellow house, and one she says has killed before.

But the more she tells them about the monster, the more her story unravels, until it isn't clear if the monster is even real, or if anything else is.

Richard Brautigan's classic surrealist novel has inspired for decades with its wild, witty, and bizarre encounters with western-themed psychedelia.

    "You will either love this or hate this"

    What a whacky surreal weird book! The whole thing reads like a crazy dream (male fantasy) or, more probably, a bad trip. I'm not sure if it is really bad or really brilliant. It just defies a coherent review. If you're curious, read it. If you are easily offended by crude language and sex scenes or if you are looking for a plot...don't.

    A guy in our book club picked this. A couple of us women are threatening revenge by suggesting something like Little Women or Jane Eyre as a next read.

    Johnathan McClain read it perfectly.
