About this product
- DescriptionWinner of a Minnesota Book Award and a Northeast Minnesota Book Award. Celebrating two decades in publication, this twentieth-anniversary edition of a timeless classic comprises forty stories and poems that feature Luke Warmwater, a Vietnam veteran who survived the war but has trouble surviving the peace. Returning to the reservation after the war, Warmwater finds poverty, unemployment, and the work of the tribal government may prove greater foes than those he faced in the Vietnam jungle--yet he finds salvation through community and humor. Northrup's 1990s newspaper columns, his play, Shinb Jep, and Ojibwe translated poems, are included as additional materials to this new edition and provide historical context for Warmwater's story.
