Looking for Redfeather
A Novel by Linda Collison
Life is a highway…
Fifteen-year-old Ramie Redfeather leaves Cheyenne with music in his pocket and his thumb in the air. He’s looking to find his father, a man he’s never met. Ramie gets a ride with Chas Sweeney, a seventeen-year-old driving a “borrowed” Cadillac Eldorado with Maryland tags, who just happens to be passing through Cheyenne. Chas is running from the wreckage that is his world, sixteen hundred miles away. In Denver Ramie and Chas meet Mae B. LaRoux, an enchanting young singer from Baton Rouge. LaRoux, who struggles with a learning disability, is on a mission to become a professional musician. The three runaways band together and set out on a fast-paced road trip to get to the Austin Music Festival, looking for Redfeather along the way.

“Linda Collison’s Friday Night Knife and Gun Club is a wry commentary on the casual violence that seems so often to occupy the news. Her depiction of hospital night work is in the tradition of Paddy Chayefsky’s absurdist and scalding screenplay for the film The Hospital. Gun-toting nurses and doctors do their best to make it through a wild, snowy night shift in an under-staffed hospital in the American heartland. This is a well-written, funny book filled with sharply observed detail that entertains even as it touches deeper issues of disconnection and alienation in modern society. Highly recommended!”
— Tim Queeney, author of The Atlas Fracture
“Well this is a feisty little number; a pistol packing nurse’s night duty is dramatically interrupted when an intruder is detected. Great atmosphere and a good deal of technical background make it a spellbinding read, although not for those of a sensitive nature. The cover art, which is worth the purchase price alone, sums up the mood of the story perfectly. Recommended.”
–Alaric Bond, author of Turn a Blind Eye.
