Winner of The Governor General's Award
And a Best Book of the Year: Publishers Weekly, Amazon, Hudson Booksellers, Washington Post

"A masterful, hilarious picaresque that keeps company with the best of Charles Portis and Mark Twain." -Wells Tower

Hermann Kermit Warm is going to die, and hired guns Eli and Charlie Sisters will make sure of it. Though Eli doesn't share his brothers appetite for whiskey and killing, he's never known anything else. But their prey isn't an easy mark, and on the road to Oregon City to Warm's gold mining claim outside Sacramento, Eli begins to question what he does for a living--and whom he does it for.
