Rough Patches
 

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.

Rough Patches was named as a Finalist for the WILLA Award and received a Silver Will Rogers Medallion.

Stories and Poems

 

 

 

 

 

 

“[Deanna Dickinson McCall’s] wisdom is hard-earned; her stories are not about the “romance of Western life.” Characters know heat and hurt, cold and loss, danger, heartbreak and toil. But, like the writer, they don’t know “can’t.” Perseverance is required for survival. When there is humor, it is wry, ironic, a way of coping with ever-present challenges of ranching life.” – Margo Metegrano, Center for Western & Cowboy Poetry
