Across the High Lonesome is a modern western odyssey that invites the reader to hitch a ride through the glacial carved vales and over the high lonesome passes of California's -Range of Light.+ A journey of love, pain and adventure, brimming with unforgettable characters, salty humor, and recalcitrant mules. Brumfield has taken a lifetime of experience packing dudes into the mountains and distilled it into a delightful work of fiction.

"I thoroughly enjoyed "Across the High Lonesome"--its fresh, readable, well paced--enough nature but not too much." --Larry McMurtry, Pulitzer Prize winning author of Lonesome Dove
"It was easy to forget the world of today and be taken to the High Lonesome along with Molly!" -- Merideth Hodges, author
While many will want to classify "Across the High Lonesome" as a modern day western, it really transcends the genre. Like the epic novel of the American west, "Lonesome Dove," "Across the High Lonesome" is the story of real people set against the dramatic landscape in which they live and work. And while there is plenty of action and adventure, there is also a cast of fully fleshed characters who the reader will come to know and care about (some of these characters have four legs and long ears!). Even the villains in this tale can ring a sympathetic note. There are no easy solutions for these folks and events don't always unfold as planned but this only adds to the authenticity of the writing. Though a work of fiction, there is more truth here than in many a modern memoir.
