"Kittredge paints with these colors: sky blue, night black, blood red. Nature has more―but none truer."―The New York Times Book Review

"We were meat hunters. You spent money for shells, you brought home meat. I saw Teddy Spandau die on that account. Went off into open water chest deep, just trying to get some birds he shot. Cramped up and drowned. We hauled a boat down and fished him out that afternoon."―from "The Waterfowl Tree"

A master storyteller and essayist, William Kittredge is best known for his unflinching vision of the hardscrabble landscape of the West and the people who survive and die in it. His stories are stripped down but bristle with life to offer a dusty, relentless landscape; the smell of freshly turned dirt; the blunt conversations about work that needs doing; and the rare, quiet moment of reflection that amounts to nothing less than poetry. The Best Short Stories of William Kittredge represents the author's finest work, available together in a handsome edition.

From the Back Cover:

"Kittredge paints with these colors: sky blue, night black, blood red. Nature has more-but none truer." (The New York Times Book Review)

"Kittredge's stories-graceful, savvy, expansive, poignant, and sometimes even grave-tell us that it is our affections, not our courage or our toughness or our willingness to be unequivocal, that keeps us from one day to another. And that is a truth worth hearing. I only wish there were more of these stories." (Richard Ford)

About the Author:

William Kittredge grew up on a cattle ranch in southeastern Oregon and taught creative writing at the University of Montana. He is often praised as one of the most important voices on the American West. He now lives in Missoula, Montana.
