Inspired by writers like Jim Harrison, Ted Kooser, and Mary Oliver, La Tray strives to share equally the beauties and sorrows that comprise a life lived “in the world at large.”

"This is a sunrise book, a book of revelations, of creekwalks and roadfood and ordinary sadnesses, ordinary joys—which are, in theend, 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 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.
