This is a collection of ten short stories that I somehow missed when it first came out. I'm very glad that I remedied that oversight.
I love author Box's storytelling and he shines in this collection. I've read all but one of his books THREE WEEKS TO SAY GOODBYE and plan on reading it next. I especially like his Joe Pickett character, Wyoming game warden, and Nate Romanowski, master falconer, and four of the stories in this collection are centered around one or the other of them. And the other stories are five star reads also.
I especially liked the short short story called BLOOD KNOT. It brought back memories of fishing with my Grandpa, even though we didn't fly fish.
I highly recommend this collection to seasoned Box fans and it would be a good taste of his writing style if you're just discovering him.
