“A stunning, funny, gracious book, its generosity outdone only by its humility.”
– Governor General’s Award jury citation
 
“Every once in a long while, a book comes out that is so entirely persuasive, so beautifully written, so well informed, so brimming with humanity, so obviously inspired, that it changes my way of viewing the world … River in a Dry Land is one of these rare finds.”
Globe and Mail
 
“This impassioned, wide-ranging book carries me back to my Saskatchewan childhood, to the grass and the sky and the exhilarating smell of the wild that was always there on the wind. River in a Dry Land … fills me with admiration.”
– Sharon Butala, author of Wild Stone Heart
 
“Herriot makes you want to go back home.”
