Annotation The town of Shale City loosely based on Grand Junction, Colorado is the setting for this scathing examination of excess in the American West. The story traces the rise and fall of John Abbott, a wealthy businessman and town patriarch in the 1920s and 1930s. As a generous philanthropist, Abbott is heralded as a hero by the townspeople when times are good. But as the stock market crashes and the Great Depression hits, the town turns on Abbott when his fortunes fade. In this work of satirical fiction the author exposes the darker side of small-town life. Explicit descriptions of sex, and some strong language.
