Praise

 
“There is something of a great writer in Marie Hélène Poitras.”
Huffington Post

“Poitras writes beautifully, realizing her world in a rich, emotional prose that invites the reader to settle in for a long, slow read. Her sensuous language evokes empathy for the horses, their riders, and ways of living that have lost their place in the city.”
Montreal Review of Books

“A ride in the Far West that is not to be forgotten.”
La Presse

“A novel that is akin to the great westerns of Cormac McCarthy.”
