West A Novel By Davies, Carys Book - 2018

Inventive short novel that chronicles the adventures of a widowed man in search of what are surely now prehistoric giant animals in the American West and what life is like for the ten-year-old daughter he leaves behind with his sister.

Well written. The novel definitely picks up pace and surprise on the homeward journey. Saw this listed recently among Man Booker long list hopefuls. Not sure the English author captured the West.
