GreenBook Festival Award Winner in Fiction 2012

a comedic yarn worthy of the big screen.”

“Cobb has obviously figured out how to combine fine writing and suspense without straining credulity
. an oddly affirming book.”
“The Bird Saviors is an immersing and emotional piece of literature
In a voice reminiscent of Charles Frazier’s, The Bird Saviors tells a fascinating story of success in spite of chaos, opportunity in spite of despair, and love in spite of hate.”
comes up with a story that is at once gritty and gripping, portentous yet promising, raw but redemptive... A touching and memorable tale that readers can’t, and won’t, soon forget... to say The Bird Saviors is ‘amazing’ is to short-change Cobb. For his is a timeless story of love and redemption, a classic tale of good vs. evil, and a can’t-miss page-turner that leaves readers wanting more.”
“Bill Cobb's The Bird Saviors is a stark modern-day Old Testament story in which the evil that men do is barely balanced by the good that a few manage to achieve. It's a gritty harrowing story set in a dust-blown Colorado town that seems filled with vivid characters. Cobb's expert story-telling compels us forward scene by scene to a final satisfying redemption.”
"A novel told with an unexpected and appealing warmth; the characters in The Bird Saviors become increasingly memorable, page by page, and the story pulled me in without hullabaloo or fuss-- this is good, confident storytelling."
“If you enjoy books by Cormac McCarthy I think you’ll enjoy this one too. I found it to be a compelling read.”
