It has been a while since i took pat in Patti Abbott's fantastic Friday feature, Forgotten Book Friday.
Outlaw by Warren Kiefer first came out in 1989. I first read it shortly thereafter and reread it again a few years back. The story and main character have stuck with me over the years. A sweeping historical saga that spans the entire 89 years of Lee Garland's life. From the frontier west of his cattle rustling adolescence to Garland's days as a member of Teddy Roosevelt's Rough Rider's this novel reads like a memoir. Weaving historical fact with fiction, Kiefer brings the story and character of Lee Garland to life and ultimately death.
Sadly, the novel is so forgotten that I couldn't find a single image of the cover on the internet.
