The Big It

(1960)
And Other Stories
(Mountain Medicine)
A collection of stories by

 
A. B. Guthrie Jr. is best known for his historical fiction; his classic novel The Way West earned him a Pulitzer Prize. Guthrie had the ability to create memorable yet believable characters, was skillful in his use of narration and point of view, and possessed a notable flair for describing the landscape of the American West. It is unsurprising, perhaps, that Guthrie also had a deft talent for short fiction. The Big It and Other Stories collects his diverse shorter tales, written between 1946 and 1960.

Often relying on a few recorded facts as a springboard for his lively and sympathetic imagination, Guthrie explores many of his favorite themes - communion between man and nature, the test of manhood, resilience in the face of new or dangerous situations - with a sure and steady hand that always holds the reader's interest. Full of humor and excitement, The Big It and Other Stories showcases Guthrie's art in a new genre and spotlights the love for the West and for westerners that is the hallmark of his writing.
