    Thomas Savage has earned a reputation as one of the best writers of the American West. He has 13 novels to his credit, and has received a PEN/Faulkner nomination and a Guggenheim Fellowship. The Power of the Dog was named the year’s best novel by the San Francisco Chronicle. It is the tale of two bachelor ranchers and the lovely widow who shifts the precarious balance of their lives. A superb storyteller, Savage spins a dramatic counterpoint of rustic tranquility and the struggle for survival.
