In the Redoubt, an isolated region of Idaho, Montana, and Eastern Oregon, the confrontation between old and new America plays out in emotional and violent skirmishes. This “true West,” as a character calls it, is “where all the Indians were dead and we white men had finally gotten around to killing ourselves.” Come West and See, by Maxim Loskutoff, unravels the mythology of the West and illustrates life in oft overlooked rural towns where men and women scramble for safety in their relationships as violence escalates around them. In twelve interconnected stories, Loskutoff’s fiction offers startling insights into America, its wounds and perpetual conflicts.
