This collection has all the fine features that have won praise for John D. Nesbitt’s earlier novels and short stories.“Nesbitt demonstrates himself a skilled wrangler of detail and character.”—Publishers Weekly“The stories depict small slices of life in present-day Wyoming, and are written in a laconic, relaxed style I found very enjoyable. They don’t hit the reader over the head with a moral or conclusion, but I found myself thinking about each one after I had read it.” —Wyoming Library Roundup“Good writing and introspective characters, as well as a sense of place to which those characters belong, have always been hallmarks of Nesbitt’s novels, and these short stories exhibit the same careful crafting. These stories are short pieces of polished prose that sparkle like jewels.” —Roundup Magazine“Nesbitt’s spartan prose stings like the wind sweeping across the harsh Wyoming plain.” —The Shootist“Nesbitt is a true artist.”—Western American Literature
