Western Settings

Red Shuttleworth

“Reading Western Settings is akin to sitting in on a game of gentleman’s poker with Hickok ‘n Holliday, Waylon ‘n Willie, Bukowski ‘n Brautigan at the Bucket of Blood Saloon in Virginia City on a Sunday afternoon. Red Shuttleworth’s poems are whiskey-throated and squinty-eyed. Yet, when the blue smoke clears, you’ll find that this is a book about family and friends, about love and legends nurtured in, and by, the big two-hearted rural West.”

–Paul Zarzyski, author of All This Way for the Short Ride
