I just finished the book a few minutes ago, shifting consciousness from the snowy, subzero photos to this warm, sunny CA morning. The book is superbly crafted in a style that is Tom Groneberg (who writes one of the book jacket endorsements) meets John McPhee. I have pushed cattle in Montana and currently work on a 250 acre ranch--a mere back 40 to the Sun Ranch's vastness--and will always think of the wolf-elk-cattle drama in "Badluck Way" relative, and not entirely un-analogous to, our daily matches of heron and coyote against ground squirrel and deer. I hope Andrews will write another book very soon.
