Christopher Frizzelle on the Shoot the Buffalo Launch in The Stranger

Clear Cut Press editor Matthew Stadler called Shoot the Buffalo “the kind of book that you can disappear into for a long period of time” at the publication party, and in one scene Briggs read, three characters disappear into the scenery and only two of them survive. There is a long section about hypothermia. There are clay hills, lush marijuana plants, and “millions of moths like pieces of paper.” The landscape is muddy and fatal, but the writing is good-natured.
