Product Details


“[A] remarkable work….told in heart-wrenchingly beautiful prose….Brief but brilliant in the spirit of Paul Harding’s Tinkers.”
Library Journal, starred review
Lime Creek is a wonderful book, subtle in texture, rich in sorrow.  I hope it gets the readers it deserves.”
–Larry McMurtry, author of Lonesome Dove
“These are beautiful stories, bravely written, and at their best, intoxicating. Word by careful word, Joe Henry shows us a world, as experienced by these Wyoming ranchers, that is both ravishing and terrible in equal measure–and hardly bounded by human experience. Though the prose brings Faulkner to mind, I found myself thinking of Lime Creek as a kind of Dubliners for Wyoming.”
–David Wroblewski, author of The Story of Edgar Sawtelle
“Like water, like shelter, Lime Creek is the kind of story readers not only want, but need.  Joe Henry brings us an extended family of people and horses, terrible winters and beautiful land.  Moving and lyrical, with a strong, honest spine, Lime Creek is a gift to readers.”
–Amy Bloom, author of Where the God of Love Hangs Out

“Spare but inordinately rich, Lime Creek will remind you of what literature is supposed to be, and do.”
—Elizabeth Berg, author of Once Upon a Time, There Was You
