Winter in the Blood by James Welch
Book DescriptionA contemporary classic from a major writer of the Native American renaissance, now adapted for film by Alex and Andrew Smith, starring Chaske Spencer and produced by Sherman Alexie During his life, James Welch came to be regarded as a master of American prose, and his first novel, "Winter in the Blood," is one of his most enduring works. The narrator of this beautiful, often disquieting novel is a young Native American man living on the Fort Belknap Reservation in Montana. Sensitive and self-destructive, he searches for something that will bind him to the lands of his ancestors but is haunted by personal tragedy, the dissolution of his once proud heritage, and Montana's vast emptiness. "Winter in the Blood" is an evocative and unforgettable work of literature that will continue to move and inspire anyone who encounters it.
