Item description for The Master Tanner Heads West by W. C. Bamberger...

Oddly, the star of this darkly comic novel set in the late 1800s isn't the master tanner, who plods along much like the naive easterner in Stephen Crane's "The Blue Hotel." No, it is the tanner's wife, Dolley, a sensuous and level-headed woman who sees the West for what it is: a land of violence, yes; but also a land of blank deserts signifying opportunity. So while her husband gets his head - figuratively and literally! - trapped inside a dead buffalo's skull, Dolley maneuvers through a monomaniacal Slavic emigre acting as town sheriff, a photographer named Swing T whose "spiritual journey" masks murderous sadism, a one-eyed poetic smithy, and a star-gazing gambler who puts out the smithy's eye with a hole card in self-defense.
