Winner of the Oregon Book Awards H.L. Davis Prize for Fiction

Storm Riders examines the conflicted love of a single father struggling to raise his adopted Native American son, who was born with fetal alcohol syndrome. When a small girl mysteriously drowns near a student-housing complex, the boy is implicated and the father wrestles with his own doubt, guilt, and responsibility.

Bringing to life the austere beauty of the Tlingit Alaskan village of the boy's family, as well as the highly educated pockets of the East Coast, Lesley vividly portrays a father and a son struggling to come to terms with each other and above all, with the truth. This novel, as The Chicago Tribune noted, is "a powerful tale with a strong emotional core."

Synopsis:

Storm Riders follows the challenges and tragedies of Clark Woods, a single father who is raising a troubled adopted Native American son, Wade. From the outset it is clear that Wade, born with fetal alcohol syndrome, is not only disabled but disturbed. Despite the strain, Clark will not abandon Wade as Clark's own father had abandoned him. Yet when Wade is implicated in a small girl's drowning near a university campus, Clark wrestles with his own doubt, guilt, and responsibility.
