Winner of the Los Angeles Times Book Prize, In the Rogue Blood is “powerful . . . impressive . . . [an] epic of the 1840s frontier” (Dallas Morning News). With soaring and masterful prose, James Carlos Blake brings to life an enthralling historical time and place—and a cast of memorable characters—in a stunning tale of dark instinct, blood reckoning, and fates forged in the zeal of America’s “Manifest Destiny.” The offspring of a whore mother and a homicidal father, Edward and John Little are driven from their home in the Florida swamplands by a scheming parent’s treacheries, and by a shameful, horrific act that will haunt their dreams for the rest of their days. Joining the swelling ranks of the rootless—wandering across an almost surreal bloodland populated by the sorrowfully lost and defiantly damned—two brothers are separated by death and circumstance in the lawless “Dixie City” of New Orleans, and dispatched by destiny to opposing sides in a fierce and desperate territorial struggled between Mexico and the United States. And a family bond tempered in hot blood is tested in the cruel, all-consuming fires of war and conscience.
