About this title

Synopsis:

“Absolutely spellbinding . . . A book to be savored, to be read slowly, with care and for pleasure.”—The Denver Post
 
In recent years, a vital and valuable regional literature has emerged from America’s interior West: work that reflects the region, its people, and their concerns, yet transcends this rugged country at large. This collection includes fiction and nonfiction from this impressive group.
