About this product
- DescriptionJames Welch never shied away from depicting the lives of Native Americans damned by destiny and temperament to the margins of society. <i>The Death of Jim Loney</i> is exception. Jim Loney is a mixed-blood, of white and Indian parentage. Estranged from both communities, he lives a solitary, brooding existence in a small Montana town. His nights are filled with disturbing dreams that haunt his waking hours. Rhea, his lover, cant console him; Kate, his sister, cant penetrate his world. In sparse, moving prose, Welch has crafted a riveting tale of disenfranchisement and self-destruction.
