From the Publisher
The Englishman's Boy brilliantly links together Hollywood
in the 1920s with one of the bloodiest, most brutal events of the
nineteenth-century Canadian West - the Cypress Hills Massacre.
Vanderhaeghe's rendering of the stark, dramatic beauty of the
western landscape and of Hollywood in its most extravagant era -
with its visionaries, celebrities, and dreamers - provides vivid
background for scenes of action, adventure, and intrigue. Richly
textured, evocative of time and place, this is an unforgettable
novel about power, greed, and the pull of dreams that has at its
centre the haunting story of a young drifter - "the Englishman's
boy" - whose fate, ultimately, is a tragic one.
