Hard Times is the name of a town in the barren hills of the Dakota Territory. To this town there comes one day one of the reckless sociopaths who wander the West to kill and rape and pillage. By the time he is through and has ridden off, Hard Times is a smoking ruin. The de facto mayor, Blue, takes in two survivors of the carnage, a boy, Jimmy, and a prostitute, Molly, who has suffered unspeakably, and makes them his provisional family. Blue begins to rebuild Hard Times, welcoming new settlers, while Molly waits with vengeance in her heart for the return of the outlaw.

The main character Blue can be quite an infuriating character to read with his naivety. You would expect a guy that age that has lived in the West so long to have more sense.

I have read "Ragtime", "The Book of Daniel", "Sweet Land Stories". All three were better than "Welcome to Hard Times". The writing in this book was very unclear and confusing at times (maybe it's just me?)
