The recollections and yarns, historical meditations, and reportage brought together in Mountain Blood display a sensibility formed by the harsh, outlandishly beautiful terrain of the American West and the place it occupies in the American psyche.
WILL BAKER (1935–2005) was a professor of English at the University of California, Davis. His books include Backward: An Essay on Indians, Time, and Photography and Tony and the Cows: A True Story from the Range Wars.

Editorial Reviews

There are essays and there are essays. And there are yarns, tales, legends, homilies, reminiscences, and testimonies. And then there is Will Baker's Mountain Blood, described by each of these nouns and defined by none. . . . One closes Mountain Blood with a notion of what an essay can be, grateful for the flexibility of the genre. Even more, one closes the book grateful for the flexibility of Baker's talent. - Prairie Schooner
