This book is a collection of Box's short stories that he had published in several different publications of collected short stories. I enjoyed reading Box's prologue in which he explains how each story came about, where it was originally published, and any requirements such as length that he had to observe. The stories are a good length and all have some punch at the ending. All of the stories are set in the same territory that he uses for his Joe Pickett series - the hills, mountains, and rivers of Wyoming. The characters in these stories are outdoors people, usually Joe Pickett is not included in these stories. While I personally find short stories not as enjoyable to read as longer novels, each can be read in a short amount of time - a treat perhaps for those with limited time for reading or for those with memory issues.

I am a fan of the Joe Pickett series. These stories vary in structure, characters and resolution, which I generally liked. But don't expect to like every story, because they do vary.

Normally do not like short stories, but because I like this writer I reserved the book. Loved it, stories just long enough.

I have waited 8 months for this book, "Shots fired". What a waste. I am disappointed at the lack of effort being put into writings these short stories. I feel let down by whom was arguably my latest favorite author.
