"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. ‘I have a stake in this,’ La Tray writes. And so do you. So do you.”
— Joe Wilkins, author of The Mountain and the Fathers, When We Were Birds, and Notes from the Journey Westward
"Chris La Tray's One-Sentence Journal is a celebration of words, and the way even very few words, in the right hands, can capture the wonder in every single day.”
— Ana Maria Spagna, author of Uplake: Restless Essays of Coming and Going; Now Go Home: Wilderness, Belonging, and the Crosscut Saw; and Potluck: Community on the Edge of Wilderness
“Chris LaTray is the real deal – authentic, with a heart as wide as the big skies of Montana."
— Gary Ferguson, author of The Carry Home, Hawks Rest: A Season in the Remote Heart of Yellowstone, and Through the Woods: A Journey Through America’s Forests
