Hasselstrom's prose is tight, yet eloquent. Her search for the relationships that build community in urban Cheyenne and rural South Dakota becomes the fulcrum for the stories she tells. Great read! ( )

A wonderful celebration of the West, combined with important messages about land preservation and respect for resources. I loved Hasselstrom's writing style and her passion for the land shines through on every page. ( )

" ... Linda Hasselstrom contemplates the changing nature of community in the modern West, where old family ranches are being turned into subdivisions and historic towns are evolving into mean, congested cities.
