Box, C. J., Open Season

“A MUSCULAR FIRST NOVEL…Box writes as straight as his characters shoot, and he has a stand-up hero to shoulder his passionate concerns about endangered lives and liberties.” —The New York Times Book Review

“SUPERB…Without resorting to simplistic blacks and whites, Box fuses ecological themes, vibrant descriptions of Wyoming’s wonders and peculiarities, and fully fleshed characters into a debut of riveting tensions.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Box’s book has it all—suspenseful plot, magnificent scenery and a flawed male hero who is tough but truly connected to his family… PROFOUNDLY MEMORABLE.” —The Boston Herald
