Walking the Rez Road (History & Heritage)

Walking the Rez Road (History & Heritage) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Walking the Rez Road contains forty short stories and poems featuring Luke Warmwater as a central character. Luke is a Vietnam veteran who has survived the war but is having "trouble/surviving the peace" on a reservation where everyone is broke and where the tribal government seems to work against the interests of the reservation folk. Throughout Walking the Rez Road, it is humor that holds the people and their community together. Winner, Midwest Book Achievement Award, Minnesota Book Award, Northeastern Minnesota Book Award.

Synopsis:

"One finishes the stories with a sense of warmth and sanity in 'Rez' life.... I defy readers to survive Mr. Northrup's loving descriptions of dreadful cars with bald tires and clanky parts without a chuckle, much less a belly laugh. Or to read his lyrical descriptions of tribal ricing without thinking we lose something out of our souls by working in climate-controlled offices". Bill Holm, author of Coming Home Crazy and The Heart Can Be Filled Anywhere on Earth: Mineota, Minnesota

"Northrup proves himself a skilled and straightforward writer ... with much insight into the human condition and a great deal of rather dark humor". Library Journal

"Northrup demonstrates a hard-edged humor.... He has already found his voice and ... (evinces) power and sensitivity". Publishers Weekly

An engaging collection of short stories and poems that offers commentary on reservation life, tribal government, and the white man's world through the eyes of a Native American Vietnam vet.

Synopsis:
