To Swallow the Earth earns the Literary Classics Seal of Approval
Wade Foster has returned home after a long absence only to find his ranch has been taken over, his sister is catatonic, and it would appear everyone in town is out to get him. When he meets a young lady who is new to town the two get off to a rough start, but eventually they become cohorts and come to rely on each other for their ultimate survival.
To Swallow the Earth is a western mystery turned love story. This intensely thrilling novel boasts a healthy dose of action interspersed throughout. With great skill and finesse, author Karl Beckstrand has brought completion to this book which was a partial manuscript inherited from the late Ransom Wilcox.
Beckstrand’s mastery of the written word provides such tangible moments you can nearly feel blood splashing in the fight scenes in this dramatic novel which is sure to get your adrenaline pumping. The story transports readers to the magnificent landscapes of Nevada, California, and Montana. Extreme shoot-outs, brawls, and challenges of strength and endurance are sure to keep readers on the edge of their seats. While the book does have some strong graphic scenes, for the most part this is a book which we wholeheartedly recommend for mature young readers.
