The BookViral Review:

A deeply affecting portrait of life in a rapidly changing bygone world, Wyandotte Bound embraces the allure of old-school and revisionist westerns whilst remaining wholly original.

It’s a captivating novel by George T. Arnold. Opening with an unforgettable scene: a reluctant gunslinger and the harsh reality of a gunfight. An extraordinary image, and one which, by the novel’s end, will have become even more powerful because of the contrast it represents.

And so begins a page-turning saga that stretches across several decades. It’s not particularly fast-paced, but necessarily so, patiently offering vital exposition through a succession of richly developed and colourful characters.

There’s Jesse with his acute sense of his own apartness, and his search for a place in the world and  Frederick who seeks a stronger sense of purpose than his family’s wealth dictates.

Through them and Arnold’s other characters, there’s a profound meditation on family, friendship, foreignness and home as he draws on literary and cinematic western traditions to conjure something completely fresh and most importantly authentic.

In a genre that has its ups and downs, Wyandotte Bound proves an outstanding read and is recommended without reservation.
