Ron Carlson is a masterful writer of short stories, that being said, I feel like this book does not stand up to his other collections - "The Hotel Eden: Stories, "Plan B For Middle Class: Stories" & "The News of the World: Stories". I first found Ron Carlson after reading a magazine review of his latest novel, "The Signal". Instead of taking on that novel, I started with his short stories and fell in love with them. "At the Jim Bridger" is Carlson's newest book of stories and I had extremely high hopes for it. However the up and down quality of the stories didn't grab me like the other books have. One of the greatest reviews I've ever read regarding Ron Carlson's short stories is as follows "Trying to sum up a Ron Carlson story is like trying to hold sparkling spring water in your bare hands - no matter how you cup your fingers, some of the magical stuff leaks out." - The Seattle Times. This collection has 9 stories and 2 very short interludes, some of my favorites were - At the Jim Bridger The Potato Gun The Ordinary Son At the El Sol At Copper View If you've never read Ron Carlson and you want to check out his short stories, please do yourself a favor and start with any of his other books. Of his four novels, I've read "The Signal" and enjoyed it immensely and I hope to read his award winning "Five Skies" soon. Enjoy~

Wow! This guy's got the Mott's. Carlson's stories make me laugh out loud, cry, and dance with the lights out. Very soon I plan to read it. (thanks to Groucho Marx)
