“Is there such a thing as free-range literature? I think there is and I think this is it. These lovely, spirited, freewheeling trip logs are charged with the poetry of motion.”

–Walter Kirn, author of Up in the Air, about Marc Beaudin's Vagabond Song.

“In Having Listened, Gary Whited guides the reader to a time and place that evokes the very essence of his experience growing up on the prairie of Eastern Montana.

— James T. Powers, author of Saving the Farm
