Product description


"With a poet's eye, Mary Logue evokes the harsh world of frontier Deadwood, South Dakota. The Streel relates the journey of a scrappy young Irish woman as she's forced from her homeland to the American midwest. Tersely and beautifully, Logue recreates the muddy streets of Deadwood, the haphazard keeping of the peace, and the rugged hearts and souls of those seeking their fortune in the Black Hills gold rush of the late 1800s. The Streel is both a taut mystery and a cautionary tale of the evils of greed. I loved the redoubtable heroine, Brigid Reardon, and I loved every stunning line of this fine story."--William Kent Krueger, author of This Tender Land

"Mary Logue is, hands down, one of my favorite writers. The Streel shows her at the top of her game. The novel is a rich combination of elements--part history, part gripping mystery, and part immigrant saga. Highly recommended!"--Ellen Hart, author of Twisted at the Root

"Mary Logue blends family lore and the history of the Irish diaspora in The Streel, a lively tale of teenage immigrants in 1880s America. Brigid finds work as a servant in St. Paul, then joins her brother and his friends in the gold fields of South Dakota, where she solves a murder and strikes it rich. Our great-grandmothers had the Right Stuff."--Elizabeth Gunn, author of Burning Meredith
