I feel like every James Welch book I read is better than the last

I feel like every James Welch book I read is better than the last. While the title is a bit of a spoiler the lackluster events and desperate milieu that lead up to the eponymous anti-climax are well worth the read. Acclaim for Welch always focuses on the fact that he was Native American, and Loney is a Native American of mixed origin. However, that is relatively inconsequential to the story, other than that it may contribute to his isolation and alienation.

One of the closest truths of the way things are on the Rez and the mind set and emotions many Native men have. Even though this book is fictional the characters of Jim Loney; the emotions, behavior and life is very real. I loved it, it is not a uplifting book but it needs to be read and people need to know how destructive things are when it comes to alcohol and broken homes. I believe Welch not only wanted others to acknowledge these problems (including Natives) but to start doing something positive to reverse all the trouble.

Boring and depressing.

Good book, easy to keep the pages turning. Great story line, was hoping that it ended differently than it did... Can't say much more without ruining the book.
