The Ploughmen free pdf A young sheriff and a hardened killer form an uneasy and complicated bond in this mesmerizing first novel that "captures the feel of Montana." (Larry McMurtry)"One of finest evocations of life in Western America in recent memory... Powerful and profoundly moving."--William KittredgeSteeped in a lonesome Montana landscape as unyielding and raw as it is beautiful, Kim Zupan's "The Ploughmen" is a new classic in the literature of the American West.At the center of this searing, fever dream of a novel are two men--a killer awaiting trial, and a troubled young deputy--sitting across from each other in the dark, talking through the bars of a county jail cell: John Gload, so brutally adept at his craft that only now, at the age of 77, has he faced the prospect of long-term incarceration and Valentine Millimaki, low man in the Copper County sheriff's department, who draws the overnight shift after Gload's arrest. With a disintegrating marriage further collapsing under the strain of his night duty, Millimaki finds himself seeking counsel from a man whose troubled past shares something essential with his own. Their uneasy friendship takes a startling turn with a brazen act of violence that yokes together two haunted souls by the secrets they share, and by the rugged country that keeps them.
