The quality of Ron Rash's writing is extraordinary... I recommend this collection to everyone who appreciates fine prose.

"In his third collection of stories, author Ron Rash continues to explore the emotionally harsh terrain of Appalachia, which he definitively renders through the use of local dialect, atmospheric prose, and flawed characters. While all 14 stories are set in North Carolina, they take place from the Civil War era to the present. Traps - both figurative and literal, of the characters' own making or by others - figure frequently, as individuals trapped by their circumstances try to better their lives, sometimes with disastrous outcomes. Provocative and insightful, these stories make "an indelible impression" (Kirkus Reviews)."
