DEANNA DICKINSON McCALL. Rough Patches. The Frontier Project. pages, paperback, 134 pages, $ 19.95 www.deannadickinsonmccall.com.

With Rough Patches, award-winning writer Deanna Dickinson McCall has assembled a powerful collection of short stories centered on women in the historical and contemporary American West. Shaped by challenging circumstances as well as the equally demanding landscapes they inhabit, her characters exhibit a brand of strength instantly recognizable to readers fortunate enough to know true “women of the West.” Against long odds, McCall’s protagonists courageously stare down adversity – sexism, illness and the unimaginable dangers of both the frontier era and modern-day ranch country.
