Book Review - The Missing

Thomas Eidson: The Missing

Originally published as The Last Ride, this was made into a movie with this new title. A “western”, yet not an “old western”. This novel examines a father-daughter relationship with the setting in the uncivilized West. It carefully examines the overall role of women in the West; carefully because of the subtlety of how it accomplishes this. Maggie is a heroine for all time. The novel also builds an understanding of the native Indian cultural ways for the reader. Enjoy!
