WESTERN Book Discussion - Question # 4

Let's continue with the title ...

  • Why do you think this novel is called THE OUTCASTS? Which characters does this phrase describe, and why? What would it take for THE OUTCASTS to be "included," and what would they lose in the process?

  1. I believe all the main characters our outcasts. No one "fits" perfectly into that society. Lucinda with her epileptic fits, Dr. Tom with his changing careers, Nate going between worlds as a farmer & lawman while Deering just doesn't fit anywhere. For them to be included they would have to lose a major part of themselves - they would not be the same people and would not be happy to be included.
