    1 thought on “Wanderlust Creek and Other Stories

    1. Elisabeth Foley caught my attention with this book. Wanderlust Creek is a collection of 6 stories, which were published earlier this year. I don’t usually enjoy many modern western novels or films. But I found this book to be quite different than the usual modern day fare.One reason I enjoyed this book was because it had an old-timey feel to it. Many modern books amount to no more than twaddle: typically introspective twaddle that is devoid of any real meaning and concentrates on feelings and [...]

    2. Character driven westerns with a charm of the old fashioned (something usually only found in books from the period) is Elisabeth Grace Foley's speciality and she has served that special up yet again with "Wanderlust Creek and Other Stories". I had been looking forward to another collection of western short stories ever since I read her first collection, falling even more in love with the author's writing when I read her Mrs. Meade Mysteries, "Left-Handed Kelly," and "Corral Nocturne". Needless t [...]

    3. Age Appropriate For: All AgesBest for Ages: 12 and up for mild violence and very mild romanceIf you like old western movies, Foley is a great writer for you. Her style is very close to those old black-and-white movies that so many of us love. Her stories are devoid of blush-worthy content and are a pleasure to read. If there is one downside I would say it is the use of euphemisms. Most of the time it didn’t bother me except in one story (sorry, I don’t remember which one) where it was a bit [...]

    4. Quiet, character-driven, and mature, the short stories in this collection were a pleasant and satisfying read. Foley's writing style is reminiscent of O Henry, but less sentimental. As far as criticisms, generally I thought the plots could be denser, revolving more strongly around a central theme. Some of them felt a little thin and rambling to me. However, with its beautifully-evoked settings, deftly drawn characters, and poignant mood, Wanderlust Creek was a sweet and enjoyable read.

    5. Great fun! Very entertaining western short stories. Lots of guns, gunmen and the odd mystery thrown in. My favourites were: The Rush at Mattie Arnold's, A Search for Truth and Room Service.

    6. I read most of this novella on a Sunday afternoon. The general happiness and subtle sweetness of the stories hooked me in one after another and I couldn't put them down. In fact, this novella made me think of our favorite western book, Letters of a Woman Homesteader, by Elinore Pruitt Stewart.Single-Handed and A Search for Truth were good, all-around gunslinger cowboy stories. The Rush at Mattie Arnold's made me laugh, especially every time Etta pinned her braids up. The Mustanger's Bride and Ro [...]

    7. I'd never read any of Elisabeth Grace Foley's work before this collection of six stories. I was quite impressed with what she's done with the tropes of the genre.There's a gunfight, threats of a range war, cattle rustling, family misunderstandings, stage hold-ups. Yet within those restrictions, she's given us well drawn characters doing things just slightly different from what one would suspect. I'm certainly going to check out some of her longer work.Highly recommended.

    8. Like Foley's earlier collection, "The Ranch Next Door and Other Stories," this is a mix of several short stories and a novella. My favorite was the novella, "Wanderlust Creek," and I also liked "Single-Handed" and "The Rush at Mattie Arnold's" especially well.Once again, Elizabeth Grace Foley has created some clean, enjoyable, highly readable western fun. I initially bought this as an e-book, but then liked it so well I went ahead and bought the paperback too.
