Slogum House "lay on the winter flat of Oxbow like the remains of some great, hulking animal that had foraged the region long ago, leaving its old gray carcass to dry and bleach at the foot of the hogback." Ruled by Gulla Slogum, the house was headquarters for a clan that terrorized what it couldn't seduce or steal. Using her daughter as poisoned bait and her sons as predators, Gulla plotted to put a whole county under her control. She had been insulted too often and worked too hard; now she sought power, land, and revenge.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"There are dozens of scenes which will stick in the reader's mind like burrs in a saddle blanket."--"New York Times"

"The style in which this extraordinary story is conveyed has a tautness, a nervous energy admirable in each successive chapter."--"Saturday Review of Literature"

""Slogum House" is a brutal book written for strong stomachs, and its author in her strength casts a shadow tall and deep. . . . Mari Sandoz writes with a sweep and power as strong as a tornado and as devastating."--"Books"

"Burning, searing narrative. Told with dazzling vividness. . . . Whatever interpretation is finally to be put on this epic of the West, an outstanding thought at the end is that the writer has tremendous literary power."--"Boston Transcript"
