“Mine might have been a simple, pretty story, if not for the wolves. In late July, they emerged from the foothills…” So begins Seattle native Bryce Andrews’ gripping memoir of a young cowboy, a wolf, their parallel lives and ultimate collision. His debut book, Badluck Way (Atria), is based on his life as a ranch hand on the remote, windswept Sun Ranch in southwest Montana. Just over the border from Yellowstone National Park, the Sun holds giant herds of cattle and elk…along with bears, mountain lions and wolves. "Andrews paints the rural landscape with such precision that the land becomes its own character, and his story [is] a finely tuned love song for the West."-Booklist. “Exquisitely written and unflinchingly honest, this haunting memoir about one man’s complex relationship with wolves and the wild will stay with you long after you finish it, oh so reluctantly.”-Patricia McConnell.
