He is an award winning writer and historian who specializes in cultural and environmental studies of the American West. William Kittredge stated that Flores belongs in "the ranks of first-string Western American writers.

Historian Elliott West has called Flores "one of the most respected environmental historians of his generation" and William Kittredge concurs, stating that Flores belongs in "the ranks of first-string Western American writers." "Engaging and provocative," "personal, passionate, and scholarly," Flores' work draws broad praise, including from author William deBuys, who calls Horizontal Yellow "one of the best books about a place you'll ever read.".
