“Carlene Cross’ treasure-laden book The Undying West is as rich as the land it describes, and must be explored with a sense of adventure. To read it is to lose yourself in an evocation of the place, people and times she writes about.” The Statesman Journal

“In this graceful look back at the land, Cross’ sympathetic view of the Indian’s struggle is especially interesting because she is a rancher’s daughter.” The Seattle Times

The Undying West is longitudinal longing in the most searching sense.” Ivan Doig, author This House of Sky

The Undying West deserves a spot in the libraries of every Western Americana enthusiast.” Paul Fugleberg, Author: Proud History

Cross beautifully captures the spirit of Montana’s people and its history.” Ben Marra, Author of Powwow: Images Along the Red Road
