9780156031424: The Work of Wolves

When fourteen-year-old Carson Fielding bought his first horse from Magnus Yarborough, it became clear that the teenager was a better judge of horses than the rich landowner was of humans. Years later, Carson, now a skilled and respected horse trainer, grudgingly agrees to train Magnus's horses and teach his wife to ride. But as Carson becomes disaffected with the power-hungry Magnus, he also grows more and more attracted to the rancher's wife, and their relationship sets off a violent chain of events that unsettles their quiet reservation border town in South Dakota. Thrown into the drama are Earl Walks Alone, an Indian trying to study his way out of the reservation and into college, and Willi, a German exchange student confronting his family's troubled history.

In this unforgettable story of horses, love, and life, Carson and the entire ensemble of characters learn, in very different ways, about the strong bonds that connect people to each other and to the land on which they live.

Published in hardcover by Harcourt, 2004, 0-15-101057-9

From the Back Cover:

Winner of the Mountains and Plains Booksellers Association Book Award

When fourteen-year-old Carson Fielding buys his first horse?a run-down,
wild-eyed roan?from the wealthiest rancher in his South Dakota border town,
he learns a hard lesson about dealing with powerful men. Years later and
now completely broke, Carson grudgingly agrees to work for the rancher,
training his horses and teaching his wife, Rebecca, to ride. But Carson and
Rebecca fall in love, angering her vengeful husband and setting off a cruel
chain of events that shock even the most hardened residents of the town.
With help from his friends from the nearby Lakota Indian reservation,
Carson, now wiser to ways of the American west, challenges the rancher's
rule, fiercely determined to protect what he holds most dear.

"Fine characterizations, crisp dialogue and a fully realized sense of place make The Work of Wolves compelling." -Denver Post

"The kind of book that demands and rewards fierce loyalty.... I instantly fell under its spell." -Christian Science Monitor

Kent Meyers is the author of The River Warren, Light in the Crossing, and The Witness of Combines. He lives in Spearfish, South Dakota, where he teaches at Black Hills State University.
