Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“By turns hilarious and thought-provoking, Branch’s collection will not disappoint.” Publishers Weekly
“Michael Branch is a master of iconoclastic irony and gifted with a unique and compelling storytelling style that will keep the reader’s riveted attention throughout.” Midwest Book Review
“In [Branch’s] always-engaging essays, we encounter sage and pronghorns, juniper and sandstone, but also garden gnomes, the art of wheel waving, casual strolls to California, Muppets, and a deep meditation on flatulence. A book that could proudly sit on any western shelf next to Austin’s or Abbey’s.” David Gessner, author of All the Wild That Remains
“In How to Cuss in Western, Michael P. Branch once again offers his readers a companionable journey into the remote places he loves so we might share in the unique joy and humor he finds there.” S. M. Hulse, author of Black River
