I had high hopes for this adventure, but unfortunately it was slow and painful. It was strange to begin with...the writing style of one million year flash back was pointless; I formed no connection to any of the weak characters; and Galapagos wasn't really important to the story - it could've been any uninhabited island. I was really hoping for something adventuresome!
Still the only Iris Murdoch I've read, and this one's a keeper.
A captivating and fun read about the real "wild west" told in typical Will James cowboy slang through a series of short stories highlighting various aspects of life in cow country. What more could you ask for with great language and fabulous charcoal/pen and ink sketches of range life? "These mustangs, if handled right, can be broke and made gentle as any barn-raised horse. They're powerful strong for their size and what there is of 'em is sure enough all horse." (p. 19) "If a rope popped, or both horse and critter went down in a mix-up, it was all the more fun and agreeing to that cowboy's heart-beats." (p. 185)
