AN INDIE NEXT PICK FOR JUNE 2012
“The Bird Saviors is an immersing and emotional piece of literature… In a voice reminiscent of Charles Frazier’s, The Bird Saviors tells a fascinating story of success in spite of chaos, opportunity in spite of despair, and love in spite of hate.”–Booklist
“Bill Cobb’s The Bird Saviors is a stark modern-day Old Testament story in which the evil that men do is barely balanced by the good that a few manage to achieve. It’s a gritty harrowing story set in a dust-blown Colorado town that seems filled with vivid characters. Cobb’s expert story-telling compels us forward scene by scene to a final satisfying redemption.”—Kent Haruf
“A novel told with an unexpected and appealing warmth; the characters in The Bird Saviors become increasingly memorable, page by page, and the story pulled me in without hullabaloo or fuss– this is good, confident storytelling.”—Aimee Bender
