"This is a gorgeous novel. This book does what art should do, which is to show us our lives with renewed clarity and better insight. Tributary takes the incomplete history and mythos of the West to task, and instead shows us some of the far more interesting and unexplored stories of American West – Mormonism, racism, women who don’t need marriage or men. Beautifully written and engaging, this is a story of one woman and her refusal to cave into societal norms in order to seek her own difficult and inspired path."
--Laura Pritchett, author of Sky Bridge and Hell’s Bottom, Colorado
Deepest thanks to her for the smashing Tributary endorsement.
Great Colorado Bear Stories comes out this week, so check it out at online booksellers, or ask at your nearest dearest bookstore. Laura’s website features all of her other award-winning books. In fact, how can one author win so many awards—PEN USA, Milkweed National Fiction Prize, Colorado Book Award, WILLA Literary Award—and not be in her dotage?! I’ll ask her when she comes to read in Boulder, April 17.
From strangers to colleagues in two days flat. Life is good.
And if you have a minute, listen to dear young Amos Lee sing “Shout Out Loud.” (Hit mute for the noisy advertisement at the start!)
