"The final installment in his nationally best-selling trilogy, Guy Vanderhaeghe's A Good Man returns to the nineteenth-century Canadian and American West to explore the waning days of one of the world's last great frontiers. Wesley Case, a former soldier and the son of a Canadian lumber baron, sets out into the untamed borderlands between Canada and the United States to escape a dark secret from his past. He settles in Montana where he hopes to buy a cattle ranch, and where he begins work as a liaison between the American and Canadian military in an effort to contain the Native Americans' anger in the wake of the Civil War. Amid the brutal violence that erupts between the Sioux warriors and U.S. forces, Case's plan for a quiet ranch life is further compromised by an unexpected dilemma: he falls in love with the beautiful, outspoken, and recently widowed Ada Torr. It's a budding romance that soon inflames the jealousy of Ada's deeply disturbed admirer, Michael Dunne. When the American government unleashes its final assault on the Indians, Dunne commences his own vicious plan for vengeance in one last feverish attempt to claim Ada as his own"--Front jacket flap

Ed is punchy, unemployed, and on the wrong side of thirty. After his exasperated wife, Victoria, leaves him, Ed finds consolation where he has always found it, in his own rich and eccentric imagination. Pursued by the demons of his own obsession, Ed embarks on a quixotic quest to find Victoria. As he prowls the city's parking garages and motel strips, Ed begins a journey back into his past and is forced - most reluctantly - to confront the web of lies and self-deceptions he has woven to keep reality at bay - until even his fantasies start to turn against him. Keenly observant, humane, and darkly comic, My Present Age is an irresistible story about what happens when an Everyman becomes a casualty of modern life

5 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The screen adaptation of Guy Vanderhaeghe’s award-winning novel, The Englishman’s Boy is an unforgettable tale set against the dual backdrops of an unforgiving 1873 North American frontier and the allure of 1920s Hollywood. Starring acclaimed actors Bob Hoskins and Nicholas Campbell, this haunting film uncovers the startling violence behind the settling of the West and delves into one of the most brutal events in Canadian history — the Cypress Hills Massacre. It also explores early Hollywood's fixation on stories of cowboys and Indians, popular and highly skewed portrayals that sacrificed truth for romance
