The recollections and yarns, historical meditations and reportage brought together in Mountain Blood are written out of a sensibility formed in the American West. They spring from a life spent in the West's harsh, grotesque, outlandishly beautiful terrain; from an imagination shaped by wild, circuitous mealtime stories of prospectors and of fistfights in isolated western towns; from the bitter history of a land where mining conglomerates dislodged the sourdoughs, where the ranch-style houses of suburbia occupy the great sweep of grass once hunted by the Lakota. Winner of the Associated Writing Programs Award for Creative Nonfiction.
