“Questions of faith and absolution fuel this evocative collection of meticulously crafted stories, all set in the contemporary American Southwest... Waters offers a diversity of thought and feeling worthy of his complex setting.”
—Publishers Weekly, boxed, starred review

“In this marvelous collection, the institutions of (American) western civilization are interrogated and unveiled, be it military, religious, familial, corporate, or correctional. Waters’ characters inhabit the challenge of the essential conflicts: man v. nature, man v. man, man v. self, and usually simultaneously.” 
—Antonya Nelson

“With The Saints of Rattlesnake Mountain, Don Waters once again shows us why he’s one of the most original and exciting voices to come out of the West.” —Willy Vlautin
