"Joe Wilkins has a big, true, highway-running American voice. When you see a new book of his, you should celebrate. Just buy it, put down the window, and let the music blow back your hair. It's nothing but alive." – Luis Alberto Urrea
No one combines the personal and the natural better than Joe Wilkins. He’s a hero of mine and will be your hero, too, if you read his new memoir, The Mountain and the Fathers, just out from Counterpoint.
