From the Back Cover:

"This collection shines...You get the feeling you're seeing how Rick Bass dreams."-- New York Newsday

"Marvelous...The title story is stunning...It's the best single piece Bass has written to date."-- Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Powerful...(Rick Bass) reminds me of D. H. Lawrence, who also relied on the power of his own voice to mesmerize the reader...Lyrical, vivid, engaging."-- USA Today

"Stunning...(A) compassionate exploration of what learning to love feels like, smells like and sounds like...Spellbinding articulate."-- San Francisco Chronicle

"Mythical...Bass creates a clear and luminous world where legends are still told."-- The Christian Science Monitor

"Bass has written some of the finest short stories in the land: terse, haunting, often near-mystical tales that have brought comparisons to Hemingway and the late Raymond Carver."-- The Oregonian

"Beautifully Written and filled with radiant imagery and a powerful sense of the mysteries of nature."-- Kirkus Reviews
