9780143105220: Winter in the Blood (Penguin Classics)

A 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.

Review:

A nearly flawless novel about human life . . . Few books in any year speak so unanswerably, make their own local terms so thoroughly ours.
Reynolds Price, "The New York Times Book Review"
For some readers this will be the most significant piece of Indian writing they have yet encountered; for others it will simply be a brilliant novel.
"The New Republic"
An unnervingly beautiful book.
Roger Sale, "The New York Review of Books"
