“Meticulously researched and beautifully crafted.... This is glorious work.” — Washington Post

“A gripping, deeply relevant book.” — New York Times Book Review

 From Paulette Jiles, author of the critically acclaimed New York Times bestsellers Enemy Women and Stormy Weather, comes a stirring work of fiction set on the untamed Texas frontier in the aftermath of the Civil War. One of only twelve books longlisted for the 2009 Scotiabank Giller Prize—one of Canada’s most prestigious literary awards—The Color of Lightning is a beautifully rendered and unforgettable re-examination of one of the darkest periods in U.S. history.

Was OK but kind of tedious and repetitive.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys books about the American west.So well written and engrossing from start to finish. The chsracters were very well described, ensuring the reader was keen to continue reading their story. Also the descriptions of the country were extremely vivid. It is based on a true story, passed down through the years but never written ..the conflicting beliefs and lifestyles between the Indiand and the settlers was completely unbiased providing the reader with a better understanding and sympathy for both. i have read other books by Paulette Jiles and enjoyed them but this ina was exceptional.
