"A debut full of atmosphere and awe. Wade gives emotional depth to his dust-covered characters, and creates an image of the American West that is harsh and unforgiving, but--like All Things Left Wild--not without hope."

-- "Sarah Bird, author of Daughter of a Daughter of a Queen"

"James Wade has delivered a McCarthy-esque odyssey with an Elmore Leonard ear for dialogue. All Things Left Wild moves like a coyote across this cracked-earth landscape--relentlessly paced and ambitiously hungry."

-- "David Joy, author of When These Mountains Burn"

"As a southerner, the very first sentence wove such a familiar and comforting tapestry, and it never let up. Wade presents rich, flawed, human characters who I feel I know personally even though I'm neither of their time or place. As someone who loves a terrific Western, this book sure did scratch my itch. I hope this book finds its way to Taylor Sheridan because that's a collaboration I need Hollywood to hop on."

-- "Corey Ryan Forrester, comedian and author of The Liberal Redneck Manifesto"

"A breathtaking debut! In All Things Left Wild, James Wade paints an exquisite portrait of the American West in all its splendor, violence, and mythic power. Messianic outlaws, deadly orphans, and soul-broken poets ride across a landscape both treacherous and beautiful, finding unthinkable viciousness and unfiltered compassion. With a voice reminiscent of Larry McMurtry and Cormac McCarthy, Wade has managed to craft a novel that is both a lyrical pilgrimage and a thrilling, page-turning adventure."

-- "Owen Egerton, PEN Southwest Book Award-winning author of Hollow"

"An intense and lyrical journey through the borderzone of the American Southwest in a time before walls, infused with the real feeling of the land, and of the violence its conquest engenders."

-- "Christopher Brown, Campbell and World Fantasy Award-nominated author of Tropic of Kansas and Rule of Capture"
