Reviews

  • First published in 1967, this reissue is becoming a word-of-mouth classic.

    Emerald Street
  • Flinty naturalism, lean prose and authentic portrait of the American frontier...it without doubt deserves belatedly to reach a wider audience

    The Sunday Times
  • An exhilarating drama between two brothers set in Twenties Montana, and better even than Stoner

    Nicholas Shakespeare, Daily Telegraph
  • Something aching and lonely and terrible of the west is caught forever on Savage's pages, and the most compelling and painful of [his] books is The Power of the Dog, a work of literary art

    Annie Proulx, from her afterword
  • [Savage’s] prose is vivid and direct… [his] descriptions of nature have real power… a slow-burn psychological western.

    The Times
