Product Details


Winner of the Spur Award for Best Historical Novel
“Douglas C. Jones is one the great novelists of the American West, and Roman is one of his finest works—a hugely entertaining story with unforgettable characters. This beautifully written tale of the rise of plucky young Roman Hasford, and his adventures on the frontier (including a vividly rendered Battle of Beecher’s Island), makes for an immensely charming and satisfying saga. I was sorry to see it end.”—James Donovan, Author of A Terrible Glory: Custer and the Little Bighorn
“Jones is not a bright new voice in Western fiction. Instead, his might be called a rich, seasoned tone, mastered through a series of increasingly impressive novels.”The Dallas Morning News
“Jones…has long demonstrated a seemingly effortless ability to paint richly detailed pictures of 19th-century America…This is work of a master craftsman.”Cleveland Plain Dealer
“Few writers can summon forth the agonies and joys of the rites of passage as poignantly as Douglas C. Jones, who in Roman counterbalances that highly personal experience with a broader one of the coming-of-age of the American West…as always, Jones’s vision is as singular as a thumbprint.”—Loren D. Estleman, Five-time Spur Award-winning Author of The Undertaker’s Wife
