From late author Glendon Swarthout (best known for “The Shootist”), “The Homesman” is a novel set in the American West in the mid 1800’s. The emotional period piece story about harsh frontier life story concerns a woman (Mary Bee Cudy) and a claim jumper (George Briggs) embarking on a danger filled cross-state trip to transport four mentally troubled women back to their families.
