THE CONSEQUENCES OF PRESERVING OUTLAWS IN ARSENIC

The Consequences of Preserving Outlaws in Arsenic-- SC Maxfield

 Outlaw ‘Oklahoma Bill’ McCready just wants to get home to Oklahoma. The only thing stopping him is that’s he dead, mummified and hanging in a Californian dark ride.
 
Johnny Redfeather, 15, doesn’t know where home is. Raised in the circus all he holds dear is a box of faded clippings left to him by his late father. They’re all about Bill McCready. Will this mysterious outlaw be Johnny’s link to his roots?
 
Becky Redfeather is weathered, worn but unbowed. She manages the farm her father left her but nurses a heartbreak that time hasn’t mended. When Johnny arrives at her farm, the doors to the past and future are blown wide open. Together they set out to find Bill McCready’s corpse, but as usual the outlaw comes tied up with a whole heap of trouble.
 

Sweeping from the dying days of the Old West to the changing world of the 1960s, SC Maxfield mines rich seams of adventure, romance, hope and redemption, plunging her characters into hair raising escapades through the backwoods and byways of America, culminating in an explosive finale back in the heartland where it all began.

 
"'The Consequences of Preserving Outlaws in Arsenic’ elegantly manages to combine elements of magic realism, thriller and comedy in a wonderful on ‘On the Road’ western tale of family reunion” -- LEFTLION
