The stories in this anthology range as wide as the Rockies, from a murder mystery to the tale of a unique horse trainer, to a family's desperate battle against a grass and forest fire to the story of a world famous violinist. But they share a common denominator: biscuits. Almost every story includes hot biscuits as a feature of daily life in the Working West. Biscuits, it turns out, are more important in western life than guns and maybe more than coffee. In the West, people who could make superior biscuits received more respect than the mayor and the police chief combined.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Hot Biscuits sustained the folks who worked the ranches of the west and "Hot Biscuits" will sustain the reader of these wonderful stories."
"We loved reading this book. We think you will, too."
"I strongly recommend this book for anyone who enjoys the West and the characters who make it so interesting, both in fact and in fiction."
"Here is the romanticism we wanna-be Westerners seek, packaged in an unexpected sweetness that is not sentimentality."
"No violence or bad guys here, simply gifts of sensitivity, knowledge and love told by folks who have been there, done that and are still doing it."
"Hot biscuits sustained the folks who worked the ranches of the west and "Hot Biscuits" will sustain the reader of these wonderful stories."
"This is an unusual and entertaining gathering of 18 short stories by writers who live and work on ranches. The fictional stories focus on a wide range of serious topics, from murder to music to love to forest fires."
"The stories not only make for good reading, they have the ring of authenticity the editors hoped for. In that respect, they're an emotional landmark in the history of the cowboy way. A reader wondering what remains of the real West will find the answer in these pages."
