In Ireland during World War II, cattle prices have never been so competitive. Deciding that the local rates are not high enough, Mark Doran leads a daring cattle drive of 200 cattle and thirteen men to the great Trallock Fair, challenging the local business men and their power. They encounter many perils and must rely on all their wits and resources. But Doran’s herd and men endure to achieve record prices and the experience of their lives. This fantastic tale is crammed with colorful characters such as Haybags Mullaney, Bessie LieDown, and the impulsive Carabim girls, owners of the Durango Bar. Its warmth and hilarity, countered by moments of lyrical poignancy, will delight the reader. The great cattle drive is as important to this community as World War II is globally. The closeness to nature of the men and their cattle is vividly realized. Durango is an adventure story set in a rural Ireland that is fast dying, but John B. Keane brings it to life with great skill, humor, and compassion.
