Joe Wilkins

"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

Essay at High Country News

Wilkins FarmHigh Country News has just posted the full text of my essay “Reconciling Family Narrative with Textbook History in Montana’s Big Horn Valley.” Though I really enjoyed researching and writing this one, it means even more to me now, as my grandmother recently passed away. She read an earlier draft, but I would have loved for her to see the piece in print. I miss her.
