Perma Red by Debra Magpie Earling
Perma Red

Irish22, November 16, 2008

I had to read Perma Red for a class assignment. At first I didn't want to pick up the book because the cover didn't interest me at all. But once I got to reading it, I couldn't put it down! I have never read a book like this. It takes me back in time to a place and era I have never been before. After completing it, I felt it had changed something in me forever. It's been a year and I'm reading it again. The second time is even more enchanting. Thank you Debra Magpie Earling for sharing the phenomenal beauty of your mind and putting it in words for the world to see.
