I received a free copy of this book for review.

A very solid four star rating for the collection as a whole. Underhill's writing reminds me of Hemingway, he likes to hint around a situation, let the characters sort of fumble their way through it, rarely giving a bigger outline or a clearer view.

Nick Wisseman lives in Bear Lake, Michigan with his wife, daughter, fifty cats, twenty horses, and ten dogs. (Okay, so there are actually ten times less pets than that, but most days it feels like more).
