This is the story of two brothers, Charlie and Eli Sisters, who are gunslingers and journey from Oregon City to San Francisco during the Gold Rush to capture Herman Kermit Warm. They have many funny and quixotic encounters,for example,with a weeping man, a bear, and a witch, and many violent ones also. It is a story of adventure, yes, but also of the shifting relationship between the brothers and their journey of self-discovery.
A very entertaining and satisfying book.
