Chris La Tray


La Tray, an enrolled member of the Little Shell Tribe of Chippewa Indians, is a writer and photographer who lives just outside Missoula, Montana. His work has appeared in various magazines, collections and anthologies.


It has been suggested that, because of the nature of his work, Chris La Tray must smell like Yukon gold dust, spruce tips, and cedar waxwings.

"Chris La Tray's One-Sentence Journal achieves the difficult task of creating a narrative out of snapshots. La Tray's observations of the world around him not only take us into his world, but provide unique insights into our world. This book is proof of the power of language, even at its most spare."

— Russell Rowland, author of Fifty-Six Counties, High and Inside, In Open Spaces, and Arbuckle
