Annotation The interrelated essays in this book explore the coming together of ethics and poetics in literatures that engage with their contemporary moments to become wagers on the future of meaning. The central concern of The Poethical Wager is the relation of poetics to agency in a chaotic world.
Thirty years ago, they came together on a war-torn frontier. Now, they’ll stand together once more—to honor one of their own... It’s a thousand miles from snowbound Montana to the Arizona Territory. But for Trap O’Shannon and Clay Madison, it’s a journey they’re duty bound to make—for the bravest man they’d ever known had made it clear: Captain Hezekiah Roman wanted to be buried in Arizona’s dusty red soil. A train takes the fallen hero south, along with his two fellow Scout Trackers and a Nez Perce woman who once fought by their side. But as the veterans recall a tale that begins with a moment of blood and agony decades before, they cannot know that death is stalking this train... or that to a bury a hero, they’ll have to risk their lives one more time. Mark Henry brings the violence and raw beauty of the frontier to life in a bold and brilliant new saga that takes us on an unforgettable journey across the American West. "Crackling with authenticity and page-turning tension. Mark Henry will become a legend." —Richard S. Wheeler, 2005 Spur-winning author of Vengeance Valley
