Description

Author Deanne Stillman

“Deanne Stillman’s Blood Brothers is a thrilling and elegantly written saga anchored around the strange friendship between Sitting Bull and Buffalo Bill Cody. By puncturing the mythology of the Wild West, Stillman proves once again that fact is always more surprising than fiction. A landmark achievement in American history!”
– Douglas Brinkley, Professor of History at Rice University, CNN Presidential Historian, and author of The Wilderness Warrior: Theodore Roosevelt and the Crusade for America

Stillman's books of narrative nonfiction are place-based stories of war and peace in the modern and historical West. Her book, Twentynine Palms, was an LA Times bestseller and "best book of the year." Hunter Thompson called it "A strange and brilliant story by an important American writer," and it was reissued in a new, updated edition by Angel City Press in 2008, with a foreword by T. Jefferson Parker and a preface by Charles Bowden. The conclusion of a ten-year journey, the book explores the brutal murders of two young girls in a scenic Southern California military town by a Marine shortly after the Gulf War.

Deanne's work appears in many publications, including the rumpus; Los Angeles Review of Books ("Letter from the West" column); New York Times (Magazine, Book Review, Arts & Leisure, Travel); High Country News; The Los Angeles Times; Boston Globe; Orion; Slate; Salon; Tin House; Gwarlingo, truthdig, and elsewhere. Her work is widely anthologized, and her plays have been produced and won prizes in festivals around the country. She has also written for film and television.

Deanne Stillman is the author of Desert Reckoning: A Town Sheriff, a Mojave Hermit, and the Biggest Manhunt in Modern California History, Mustang: The Saga of the Wild Horse in the American West, Twentynine Palms: A True Story of Murder, Marines, and the Mojave, and Joshua Tree: Desolation Tango.
