An Award

The Mountains & Plains Independent Booksellers Association's 2008 Regional Book Awards, has awarded the top fiction prize to one of my favorites, God of Animals by Aryn Kyle.

This is my review from 2007:

It's wonderful book by a first time author; one of those novels that stay with you for a long time. It's different, of course, but I'd compare it to The Turtle Warrior, Augusta Locke, Name all the Animals, and Blind Your Ponies. For me, fits in with these greats because I couldn't put the book down, and when I had to, I couldn't wait to get back to it. And it passed my ultimate test; it stayed with me long after I closed the book for the final time. Kyle paints a true picture of the modern American West, and the struggles of the families who live there. The God of Animals is a magnificent story of western life and character."
