Warren grew up on the Grant-Kohrs Ranch in Montana, now a national historic site, and has lived in California since 1980. In addition to writing eight novels, she spent the last 50-plus years carving out a body of short works that both celebrate and scrutinize her native West. Her articles, commentaries, editorials, blogs, investigative reports and historical pieces have appeared everywhere from The Reader’s Digest and Persimmon Hill to Huffington Post, Montana Magazine, and the Hot Springs Little Baldy Press. Here she collects a sagebrush bouquet of favorites on everything from agriculture to zest, by way of cooking, ethnicity, history, politics, sexuality and other subjects.
In his foreword, noted author/filmmaker Gregory Hinton, himself a born Westerner, says of this book: "A masterwork by one of our most gifted storytellers. Patricia’s deeply evocative stories will quickly transport even the most dug-in urban reader to the heartland that is the American West."
