About the Author
Chris La Tray, an enrolled member of the Little Shell Tribe of Chippewa Indians, is a writer and photographer who lives just outside Missoula, Montana. His work has appeared in various magazines, collections and anthologies.
It has been suggested that, because of the nature of his work, Chris La Tray must smell like Yukon gold dust, spruce tips, and cedar waxwings. He hopes it's true.
His book, Becoming Little Shell, will be released by Milkweed Editions in 2022.
"(This) book truly represents excellence in Montana literature and is an important contribution to the genre. The committee of readers was unanimous in our selection."
-- Elizabeth Jonkel, Chair of the Montana Book Award Committee
"This book is proof of the power of language, even at its most spare."
-- Russell Rowland, author of Fifty-Six Counties
"With a humble and grave generosity to all things and people who cross his path, La Tray reminds us all to slow down and take stock of our surroundings. Attention is the true work of a writer and poet, a tribe La Tray can proudly call himself to be."
-- Charles Finn, editor of High Desert Journal
"This is a sunrise book, a book of revelations, of creekwalks and roadfood and ordinary sadnesses, ordinary joys--which are, in the end, the only kind."
-- Joe Wilkins, author of Fall Back Down When I Die
