Product Details


“Think: Cagney amid the cactiLas Vegas Review-Journal
“Lyrical and subversive, the book is a rollicking celebration of living a joyously untamed life. An engagingly quirky collection.” —Kirkus Reviews
“There have been dozens of hermit-in-the-woods Walden-like memoirs and essay collections written since Henry David Thoreau’s death, but few capture Thoreau’s raw, stubborn love for the natural world with as much humor and honesty as Michael P. Branch’s Rants From the Hill’—Chicago Tribune

“At its best this book lends to Nevada the sort of sacred quality that good stories give to places. Reading it left me caring about a place I did not know and have never seen . . . . this book fits in well with the hyperlocal tradition of nature writing. Branch knows about something beautiful and wants to share it . . . . Rants from the Hill might fit well on a western nature writing syllabus, or selected essays might find a home in a broader course, but it’s mostly just a pleasure to read.” —Western American Literature
