Badluck Way

By Bryce Andrews
Simon & Schuster, Inc. Atria paperback,
2014, 238 pages, $15


Bryce Andrews went to work on the Sun Ranch in the Madison River Valley expecting hard work and days spent with cattle, landscape, and weather. But the work grew to include defending the cattle against wolves, who came to live there, too. The tension between duty and a sensibility that respects the natural world and its creatures challenged Andrews and makes for a deeply thoughtful memoir. Andrews earned an environmental studies master’s degree from UM and runs a conservation-based cattle operation near Missoula.
