Product Description

Come West and See is a work both timely and timeless. Set in the Redoubt, an isolated triangle of Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming where an armed occupation of a wildlife refuge escalates into a separatist uprising, these stories explore the loneliness, insecurity, and frustration inherent to love and heartbreak. A lakeside wedding drunkenly devolves into a cruel charade; an unemployed carpenter joins a militia after his wife leaves him; and a former soldier raises the daughter of a dead comrade in a bunker beneath an abandoned farm. Come West and See explores divisions both personal and political, offering startling insights into the wounds of the American people and a powerful new vision of the West.


“Narrators Wendy King and John McLain do fine work capturing the cadences and intonations of the sometimes-enigmatic characters in these linked stories.” —AudioFile

"A ferocious love letter to the forgotten and the scorned, Come West and See is unlike any book you'll read this year. It blazes with soul, and Maxim Loskutoff's American West comes alive in these stories. A hell of a collection and a most impressive debut." —Matt Gallagher

"Maxim Loskutoff highlights life on the other side-the disenfranchised, angry, sullen, rebellious, gun-packing side. See them attempt to create a homeland of their own." —William Kittredge
