"Profound and ambitious. . . . Guterson depicts . . . moral and spiritual struggle with a clear-eyed intensity and intelligence that gives East of the Mountains its essential authority." --Chicago Tribune

"Guterson possesses a remarkable gift for capturing people and places, etching them into the reader's mind." -USA Today

"Wonderfully written, tender toward its characters, and full of incident and insight." -Men's Journal
