Sep 10, Alison rated it did not like it Shelves: read.
While many men could deal with the desolation of the west, they could not deal with a mad woman. Then just over half way through the book, Mary Cuddy, who could almost outdo a man in anything, began to display incredulous behavior by whining because she had fallen in love with Briggs, who was not a good catch.
Her whining behavior just about caused me to put the book down before even I went insane. It was just so out of character. Even her helplessness around the camp site got to me.
Perhaps love can make some strong woman act goofy. Still, I continued with the book. Then when I saw that the story was falling apart in my hands, I took up skimming the book, which is how I saved my sanity.
I can only say that Briggs did a jig at the end of the book. He danced in the star and moonlight and howled at the moon. How it was there was a riddle without an answer, unless by bird dropping.

The movie was a little disappointing in that Mary's workmate, Briggs, is played by Tommy Lee Jones, so you have a man in his late sixties playing a man who is just a touch on the wrong side of forty.
Even so, it was obvious that this story came from the pen of a master and I wasted no time getting a copy of th I loves me a strong female protagonist, so when I saw Hilary Swank's strong performance as Mary Bee Cuddy in the movie The Homesman I knew I had to read the source material for the movie.
Even so, it was obvious that this story came from the pen of a master and I wasted no time getting a copy of the book from our local library.
Mary Bee Cuddy is a woman possessed of that strength and fortitude required to thrive in a solitary existence on a prairie farmstead. She is competent and resolute, and provides for herself in a most competent manner.
She thrives where others collapse. She is in a situation where she would like to have a man, but doesn't really need a man.
Other women in the vicinity have had a bad winter and, lacking Mary's strength, have succumbed to the comforting embrace of insanity.
Mary volunteers to escort these women back east to relatives in an early mule-drawn version of a paddywagon, along the way picking up the competent but reticent Briggs who serves as a quarrelsome assistant.
The story elaborates on this journey, detailing the hardships encountered along the way and the final disposition of their charges.
I would class this as a western noir novel, not your standard oater by any means. The story is quite good, very original, but I would have liked to have seen a little more work on the main characters in order to understand how they came by their particular character traits.
There is some action, all of it believable but not really engrossing. The story is character-driven, sad, and historically accurate as near as I can tell.
I'll remember this one for a long time. View all 4 comments.

Swarthout is a gifted storyteller with a keen eye for detail, drawing an authentic narrative of the treacherous Great Plains; the harsh conditions and desolation pioneers encountered in the unforgiving frontier of the 's, that led to many cases of suicides and madness in that time of early settlement.
Until the filing was done, technically, they were "'squatters' with appurtenant 'squatter's rights', and possession was nine points of the law.
The four women driven mad by isolation, overwhelming daily hardships and fear become worrisome burdens on their husbands who find themselves incapable of caring for their irretrievably insane wives.
Sorry, pioneer husbands don't come out smelling like roses here. The only solution for them: to elect a Homesman to escort their wives back East to their kinfolk, or to an asylum.
An Odd Couple- Mary Bee Cuddy : an ex-teacher, self-sufficient, strong-minded, resourceful; a loner who doesn't seem to be affected by isolated life; skilled with a rifle, big at heart.
The onus falls on her to return the women to their families; she's eager to do so but with some trepidation. She realizes she can't manage this alone, " her own foolish heart rushing in where angels fear to tread.
She saved him from a lynching for the offense of claim jumping a neighbor's land, expecting him in turn to help her with her enormous undertaking.
They are certainly an ill-matched team, and at times, it's all Mary Bee can do to watch her back and keep Briggs under control.
Mary Bee put hands on hips. Bullets and tobacco, maybe, but no whiskey. Not a drop. He stuck his head through the window and knocked off his hat. They were to traverse almost the entire Territory, and Briggs set a course due east.
Mary Bee preferred to follow the river valleys, which ran southeasterly, in hopes of encountering people who would aid them on their way, the more people the better.
He contradicted her. The fewer the better. It's freight to me," he said. We can meet three kinds of people out here. Haven't had a woman lately.
Who else? After they lay me low they'll have a high time with the five of you. The Homesman has been recently adapted to film and due to be released later this year; if it is as good as this novel, I'll expect many movie awards.
I'm very excited! View all 11 comments. Oct 03, J. Some of the pioneer women during this period suffered emotional and psychological breakdowns that were so severe, they had to be removed from the prairie and treated elsewhere.
George Briggs is the no good drifter who helps a teacher spinster named Mary Cuddy transport a group of afflicted women across the plains for help.
This is a great story of history, courage, compassion, and the human condition. A prevailing sadness about the book made for a memorable read.
Nov 14, Scott Axsom rated it really liked it. This is my first outing with Glendon Swarthout, so I had no idea what I would be encountering.
I did read a few of the reviews of The Homesman before I read the novel, though, and I was aware that Swarthout does something later in the book that really angered some readers.
As such, I read it with a wary eye. The well-told story is of a journey from homesteader Nebraska to Iowa during the 's.
The purpose of the trip is to return to civilization four women who have been broken by the frontier l This is my first outing with Glendon Swarthout, so I had no idea what I would be encountering.
The purpose of the trip is to return to civilization four women who have been broken by the frontier life.
The shepherds of these lost souls are a hard-beaten frontier survivor named Mary Bee Cuddy and an even harder-beaten frontiersman by the name of George Briggs.
The stories of the four women are individually laid out by Swarthout and each is more poignantly told and tragically realized than the last.
It is a story adeptly, if simply, told and I did find it compelling enough to keep my interest. My complaints about the writing itself would probably fall on the lack of lyricism and allegory that rendered it somewhat less than wholly satisfying to me.
And that question is this: What does the author owe me, the reader? Because at that point in this otherwise nicely told tale, the author pulled the rug out from under me.
I'd never encountered anything remotely like it in my reading experience and I had to wonder if the convention he'd just breached was so certainly settled that I'd previously failed to even recognize its existence, let alone its importance.
I was inclined to just put the book down forever or, perhaps more honestly, to throw it through the nearest window. I did continue to read, though, because I just had to know if I'd been really and truly betrayed or if my despair would be ultimately rewarded with some soaring allegorical resolution.
In order to keep the review on this side of the no-spoilers wall, I won't go any further into what Swarthout did that was so egregious or as to whether he redeemed himself Hint: I did purchase They Came to Cordura immediately upon finishing this book but I will say that an author, in my judgment, is allowed to completely flout convention as long as he doesn't betray my trust.
That trust is based on the assumption that I'll go the entire distance on this journey with the writer and, in return, the writer will lead me somewhere worthwhile - a fairly simple arrangement.
Now, as to whether Swarthout has honored that agreement in The Homesman , all I can tell you is that you'll be faced with this question if you read it and, for that reason alone, I have to suggest that anyone who loves literary fiction should do so.
The book comes late in his career and, I can assure you, he knows what he's doing here. View all 9 comments. Sep 06, Cmv rated it it was ok.
This is my very first review on Goodreads, I usually don't write them but this book rubbed me so much the wrong way I couldn't help but write one.
The book is very engaging and readable, thus the 2 stars. However, it is touted as an examination of pioneer life from the usually unheard voices of women which is exactly why I was intrigued to read it in the first place yet the author's portrayal of these woman seems to undo the very flattery he supposedly meant to give them.

Having read the book I can say that the film mostly sticks to it faithfully - however, as I really, really didn't enjoy the film and read the book to see if I was missing something vital, that meant I didn't enjoy it much.
This is being touted as a 'feminist' western, which confounds me utterly. There are no positive depictions of women in this book.

For all that a portrayal of the madness of women on the frontier could have been a feminist story, the way in which this is written makes it seem that women, when faced with the same hardships as men, revert to one of two states - childlike innocence or harpy like violence.
Apparently the author researched this book in depth, but I don't see how as the history books that I've read for my own novel show that women not only bore a lot on the frontier, but many managed to do so competently and well.
This book does not show women who are coping with their hard lives, it shows only insane women, and women who were left at home with their parlors and their sowing machines and their jobs cooking in hotels, who stay sane.
Apparently only drunk whoremongers, theives and gamblers can survive without becoming criminally or fatally insane.
What is the message behind that? That women 'being too pure for these activities' have no choice but go mad? I feel as if the fate of Cuddy was the turning point of this.
Had she lived, had she thrived, then I'd be calling it a feminist novel, as it is, claims that this is a new kind of western and a feminist novel rub me up the wrong way.
The only difference between this and the old style westerns is that this features women who aren't whores. That doesn't make them positive or accurate portrayals.
This book also glosses over the various other races present on the plains at that time, for example the Chinese men and women working on the railroad and being trafficked into prostitution.
Native Americans appear only once, from a distance, and are quickly paid off with a horse to prevent them slaughtering the whites.
Not necessarily inaccurate but not terribly rounded either. I have no doubt that women went crazy on the fronteir, but of the 5 main women in the book, all of them are crazy, and crazy because of 'women's issues' like their children dying, unwanted pregnancy, being barren and losing their mother and not having anyone to marry them.
Only one woman goes mad because of something that could have happened to a man - she is beset by wolves - but the suggestion is that this only drives her insane because 1.
Women being driven mad by women's issues isn't exactly the feminist novel I signed on for. Lots of things were hard on the frontier, but the things that were hard for women were not solely their province.
Only Cuddy, whose maddness is seemingly attributed to her loneliness her lack of MALE company comes close to being accurate.
But she never tries to ease her loneliness with female company, finding a widow or an orphan to live with. Which seems bizarre, given how many of those two groups there were, and how lonely she supposedly is.
It just reads as 'here's this woman who is successful and prosperous as a farmer without a man to tell her what to do, but she kills herself anyway because no man will have such a 'bossy' women.
Lonesome Dove is far far better, and even though it doesn't have many female characters I think it has 3 each is a multidimensional believable and well researched character.

A story of shattered hopes and dreams, squalor and broken hearts. A strongly depicted story but sad, very sad particularly for the women and their children.
Feb 27, Sarah rated it it was ok. What an odd and ultimately disappointing read this was. I was all set out to give The Homesman a good four star review for being a rather good romp until I reached the last third of the book.
The language was perhaps perfunctory but it had some great characters and a compelling plot. Then it stopped being compelling.
The Homesman went off on a strange tangent and I found myself not really caring how it was going to end. It was What an odd and ultimately disappointing read this was.
It was a huge shame considering how promisingly it started out. These four women, Theoline Belknapp, Arabella Sours, Gro Svendsen and Heda Petzke have suffered total mental breakdowns after watching their children die or suffering mistreatment at the hands of their husbands.
Throughout the novel we learn more about their plights through flashbacks. Unsure if she can manage on her own, Mary Bee recruits George Briggs, an outcast who owes her a debt, to assist her.
Together they embark on the dangerous journey east, travelling through ice storms and hostile territory. The problem with The Homesman is essentially its switch in focus in the last third of the book.
The majority of the book is a very interesting if somewhat simplistic look at the experiences of the forgotten frontier women. For much of the novel Swarthout gives voice to a group that is so often ignored.
Mary Bee Cuddy and the women she is chaperoning start to become living breathing characters as their histories are explored, and they even have a few moments of badassery.
Then, something disappointing happens and The Homesman swiftly becomes the George Briggs show. Out of nowhere Briggs quickly becomes an undisputed hero.
Although fairly much undistinguished physically until this point, he now performs feats of superhuman strength pretty much on demand.
There is also a more or less pointless side quest in which he singlehandedly destroys a hotel Not really sure why it was included, it has nothing to do with bringing the women east.
Compare that to Mary Bee, a hard-ass ex-teacher who supports the whole community, and I know which story I would rather hear.
Their stories just fade into the background as we watch Briggs fart, drink, and bar brawl his way through the last fifty or so pages.
After a promising start and some pretty decent exploration of what it was like for these women, the status quo is re-established and all the good work that Swarthout has put in is nearly undone.

And I wrote Mr Newman well, it was official correspondence and told him what I'd been told, and that I'd love to offer myself up for the task of adapting this book for him.
I really did that. And--it gets worse. I did that knowing--KNOWING--that the script he'd been shopping around trying to get made for this project was supposedly causing all sorts of problems because everybody "knew" that despite whatever name was on the script, Paul had written it himself.
And nobody wanted to say, "Paul, this script is bad. I wrote and offered my services as a screenwriter. Of course nothing came of it.

Indeed, even after putting the book down, I care about the characters who will stay on with me for a good long while.
However, this reader has certain standards that this book did not achieve. Not all of the characters had the necessary integrity to make this a believable story.
Another way of putting it is that this was a good story but didn't seem realistic in most ways. A good tale. Don't want to spoil the book for anyone, so will just say that, unfortunately, one of the two major protagonists acted in ways very inconsistent with the author's development of the character.
The author tries to explain this away with prose, but it just doesn't ring true. About midway through the book, it seemed that all the voices in the book spoke with about the same cadence.
Then the scenes began to unfold that appeared to be just that, scenes in a movie. My thoughts All of the elements that rang untrue would stand up much better in a movie, with charismatic actors playing the roles, to assist us in our suspense of disbelief.
Perhaps the most distracting device the author used a few times was giving the the protagonists the time to review the history of how they got where they got.
Again, without providing a spoiler, think of movies which provide visual flashbacks to remember the touching moments people spent together over time -- always designed to provoke tears.
It seems a manipulative device in movies, and in this book it seemed like stage direction to this reader. Most readers don't need the novelist to regurgitate the past events to make sure we were paying attention.
After reading the book, and looking it up online, I find that it is "soon to be a major motion picture directed by Tommy Lee Jones.
I'll likely give the movie 5 stars. Great literature, not really. Good read, interesting story, yes. Would I recommend it? But, might as well wait for the movie.

He is a master of "show, don't tell," and the effect hits like dynamite. This novel worked for me in a variety of ways.
Descended myself from a direct line of strong, solid, Sarpy County, Nebraska pioneer women, the subject matter interested me immediately.
As with the best of Larry McMurtry's period westerns, the off-kilter juxtaposition of heartbreaking events with dry, homespun humor kept me turning pages compulsively.
Thematically, I was moved by the plight of characters that find themselves struggling against currents they can't overcome, whether they be geographical, historical, or societal.
Misfits and outcasts occur in every age and location, and their stories, in the right hands, can convey human sorrows and triumphs like nothing else.
What are the real trade-offs when the trappings of civilization are exchanged for the freedom of a frontier, if that freedom can only be had through hardscrabble toil and tribulation?
And what effect does such a life have on gender roles and expectations? What happens to the human psyche when we are deprived of our most basic need for communion with others of our kind?
Finally, this novel left me pondering why it should be that tragedy and loss can bring out the worst in some, but the best in others.

Swarthout tells of Mary Bee Cuddy a 30ish spinster, tough as nails, who has a nice homestead near Loup, in the Nebraska Territory.
Homespun was first printed in and rereleased in Swarthout characters are heart-wrenchingly believable because they are drawn from true-life pioneer experiences.
I understand this book was made into a movie, first in starring Paul Newman and again in The woman who takes the ill women is played by Meryl Streep.
Four other Swarthout books have been made into movies by John Wayne. Swarthout writes across a number of genres but it is his western that were made into movies.

The movie follows the book fairly faithfully but I found the book more engrossing. T he novel could be classified as a western, but the action, taking place a decade or two before the Civil War, is not about any usual taming or settling of the west but rather the unsettling of it, at least for four women.
These women just snapped, broke down and became demented. What to do with them? They were burdens, of no practical use, and there were no insane asylums in the territory to take them in.
Arrangements are made to take return them to a civilized settlement in Iowa, but the question becomes who will do it.? Men are busy with spring chores, and the task falls to Mary Bee Cuddy, an independent and rugged spinster who has her own farm.
She could never do it by herself, but she rescues a claim jumper who is about to be hanged, and in return for freeing him , gets a promise to help her take these four women hundreds of miles back east.

The music by Marco Beltrami has received praise from critics. The score emphasizes the use of wind sounds to show how early settlers had to endure the constant wind without solid shelter, which imitates the character themes of being mentally undone by the elements that surround them.
Beltrami used inventive measures such as using a "wind piano" and recording outside. Beltrami said the goal was to take the "warmth" out of the sound to dissipate the air.
Saban Films bought the film after Cannes for release, with Roadside Attractions joining to distribute the film in the U.
EuropaCorp will distribute abroad. The film was limited-released in the United States on November 7, , with plans to expand over following months. The Homesman has received mostly positive reviews from critics, with particulars standing out being Swank's performance, the cinematography, score, and costumes.
Betsy Sharkey with the Los Angeles Times wrote: "Swank and Jones, in particular, are a very good odd couple, playing saint and sinner, sometimes reversing the roles.
What the directing side of Jones does best is to cede the spotlight to his star. He builds a strong platform for Swank to take on yet another woman who refuses to be bound by gender conventions".
Andrew O'Hehir with Salon wrote: "Swank gives a magnificent performance as a woman whose calm and capable exterior cannot completely conceal her worsening desperation.
In its unsentimental poetry, its stripped-down imagery and its unforgettable lead performances, 'The Homesman' is a ruthless western classic Claudia Puig with USA Today wrote: "Set on the Great Plains in the mids, 'The Homesman' aims for a story that's poignant and told sparely, but comes across as mawkish, tedious and self-indulgent.
Swank brings a gravitas to her character that is undermined when some of her antics are played for laughs.
In a minute cameo, Meryl Streep's character is more fully developed than any of the leads' roles. The story attempts to show how hard it was for women in the Old West, but it ends up being Jones' surly show".
