"Urrea wrests strange, beautiful poetry out of the mean, lean desert terrain." --Publishers Weekly

"Urrea is one of the hottest Chicano writers around." --The Nation

"I laughed so hard at one scene in this book that I pulled a muscle in my chest, which makes In Search of Snow a literal rib-splitter." --The Albuquerque Journal

"Urrea is, in three words, One Terrific Writer. Without getting in the way of the story, his hypnotic, ethereal passages paint a magnificent background. More than once, you'll find yourself rereading a paragraph, not for clarification or out of literary curiosity about how he pulled it off, but simply because it's so beautifully done." --San Diego Union-Tribune
