It is worth reading - probably more than all of Waller's other books. June 10, - Published on Amazon.
HIGH PLAINS TANGO
As a whole, the story is seemingly slow-moving and tender; yet, the middle contains a fast-paced free-floating section that barely resonates with the beginning or the end. It is above all, a story: a story well-told and warm.

Waller has a very uniqe style unlike most every other writer. He does have a little bias against Big Agricultue, and government in general, but I have learned to overlook that because I ejoy his story!
Near Wolf Butte, a strange and apparently haunted monolith, he finds his quiet, or so he believes, and begins rebuilding a decrepit house as a tribute to the gruff old man who taught him a carpenter's skills, rebuilding his life at the same time. He finds two very different, independent women: Gally Deveraux, who works at a diner in Salamander and longs for something more than she is; and Susanna Benteen, beautiful and enigmatic, who was drawn to Salamander for mysterious reasons of her own, a woman the town has labeled a witch.
The women and his carpenter's trade and an old Indian known as Flute Player bring Carlisle a sense of contentment for a while. But his quiet is shattered as bulldozer treads begin to turn and the Yerkes County War commences. Run or stand your ground, that is Carlisle's dilemma, Gally on one side, Susanna on the other.
'High Plains Tango' has two left feet
High Plains Tango is the hauntingly lyrical story of a small town in the middle of nowhere, a town that forever changed, and was forever changed by, one man. Listening to this book was like getting a wonderful massage - very soothing, sensual with a bit of muscle work added.

I thoroughly enjoyed the characters, the nature of the conflict and how it was all tied together. And the reader - excellent!!! Great Midwestern tale revolving around too common politics of our time.
The pace of this wonderful book is never hurried, always completely assured and allows the reader to revel in the beautiful prose. Parts of the story brought tears, other sections raised a smile and elswhere indignation. There are eccentrics, down to earth everymen, goodies and baddies who refuse to be so easily pigeon holed as the good guys are flawed and bad guys have mitigating weakness. There are hints of mysticism but don't let that put you off because it's also a hard bitten story unafraid to let the hero down.
