With plot points that could be taken from contemporary newspaper headlines, "Wandering West" is a deftly scripted contemporary novel that documents author Gary C. Stalcup as a master wordsmith and a skilled novelist. A riveting and entertaining read from beginning to end, "Wandering West" is highly recommended for personal reading lists and community library Contemporary Fiction collections. -James A. Cox
Midwest Book Review
In Stalcup's Wandering West, disgraced New York trader (Jack Stiler) starts over as a ranch owner in rural Texas.
...Jack's misfortunes intensify, calcifying into a surprisingly enthralling, if at times overwhelming, account of one unlucky guy...But such a complaint is nearly inconsequential in light of the constant thrills that keep the pages turning. And that's saying nothing of Stalcup's deep-seated empathy, convincing dialogue and metered prose that evoke the work of Kent Haruf and Pete Dexter.
An ambitious, sincere novel that weighs the meaning of family and success. -Kirkus Review

Well, actually, I had to put it down for a few hours. You see, we were on a boat on the open ocean, making a crossing between islands. As soon as we entered the reef barrier, I had to find out what happened next, I had only 5 chapters to go, and there were lots of things happening. So, while I was trying not to be seasick, my imagination and thoughts were all about that book, and what would happen next.
I hear he has a new book coming out, soon. Will be buying that one as soon as it's available.
