Staff Reviews


Years ago, a silver baron forced the Crow people to give one of their most beautiful daughters, Gun That Sings, to him in marriage. To them, a half-white, half-native child is born and in childbirth, Gun That Sings’s life ends. Tired of being hidden away for years, Snow White, mockingly nicknamed by her stepmother for the fair skin she will never have, packs her pistol and runs away to make her own way in the world. In a short but evocative novella, Catherynne M. Valente reimagines the tale of Snow White in the wild west in a way that is both familiar and refreshingly gritty.

Description


A New York Times bestselling author offers a brilliant reinvention of one of the best-known fairy tales of all time with Snow White as a gunslinger in the mythical Wild West.

Forget the dark, enchanted forest. Picture instead a masterfully evoked Old West where you are more likely to find coyotes as the seven dwarves. Insert into this scene a plain-spoken, appealing narrator who relates the history of our heroine’s parents—a Nevada silver baron who forced the Crow people to give up one of their most beautiful daughters, Gun That Sings, in marriage to him. Although her mother’s life ended as hers began, so begins a remarkable tale: equal parts heartbreak and strength. This girl has been born into a world with no place for a half-native, half-white child. After being hidden for years, a very wicked stepmother finally gifts her with the name Snow White, referring to the pale skin she will never have. Filled with fascinating glimpses through the fabled looking glass and a close-up look at hard living in the gritty gun-slinging West, this is an utterly enchanting story…at once familiar and entirely new.
