Red Earth, White Earth by Will Weaver

Book Description

Having fled his family's farm at eighteen with a promise never to return, Guy Pehrsson is drawn back into his past when he receives his grandfather's ominous letter, "Trouble here. Come home when you can." He returns to discover a place both wholly familiar and barely recognisable and is cast into the centre of an interracial land dispute with the exigencies of war. Widely acclaimed when first published in the eighties, the timeless novel "Red Earth, White Earth" showcases Will Weaver's rough ease with language and storytelling, frankly depicting life's uneven terrain and crooked paths.

Survivors by Will Weaver Survivors, Paperback (March 2013)

Sixteen-year-old Miles, thirteen-year-old Sarah, and their parents find themselves changing in many ways as they struggle to survive winter in a remote cabin, while keeping anyone in the nearby town from learning they are living there illegally after the devastation of volcanic eruptions drove them from their Minneapolis home.

Memory Boy by Will Weaver Memory Boy, Paperback / softback (March 2012)

Weaver takes readers on a futuristic "Swiss Family Robinson" journey. After cataclysmic volcanic explosions, Miles Newell and his family must leave their home in Minneapolis before they, too, become victims of the violence.

Libraries of Minnesota by Will Weaver Libraries of Minnesota, Hardback (April 2011)

From cosy structures near small-town parks to impressive buildings in metropolitan downtowns, public libraries stand at the centre of community and learning in Minnesota's landscape. This title celebrates these architectural icons and the joy of reading they have inspired in Minnesotans, present and past.

Last Hunter by Will Weaver Last Hunter, Hardback (October 2010)

Minnesota's Will Weaver has been a hunter since he was a young boy. Hunting frames Weaver's childhood memories, his relationship with his father, and his own definition of self. In this book, his heartfelt rendering sweeps us along on a family journey from an isolated North Dakota farm 'built around a fork and shovel' to post-modern America.
