Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A novel of extraordinary wit and imagination, covering immense geographical, historical, and emotional ground. Full of twists and turns, verve, and vinegar…A remarkable debut.” Karen Joy Fowler, New York Times bestselling author
“An entertaining romp through the American 1870s.” Publishers Weekly
“A sweeping saga of the western frontier in the 1870s, filled with colorful characters…Turpentine is certainly an endearing literary creation, combining the wide-eyed innocence and crafty survivor’s instincts of a Huck Finn…Warren knows how to spin a tale. There is considerable excitement, humor, and occasionally pathos in this enjoyable debut.” Booklist
