Look Ma - No Hands!

Black Hat Jack, by Joe R. Lansdale

Joe R. Lansdale’s “Black Hat Jack” is an… interesting western about an African American Cowboy and his partner exploring the great west and getting into trouble with Native American Tribes. Black Hat Jack, by Joe R. Lansdale

I wouldn’t exactly recommend it to kids nor adults who are squeamish about rough language, but it’s a good tale.
The writing style reminded me a bit of Mel Brooks’ Blazing Saddles, a bit of Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained – take that as an indication of the language and attitudes of some of the characters – as rough as it seems genuine to the place and period.
