Winner 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 tribal government work may prove greater foes than those he faced in the Vietnam jungle--yet he finds salvation through community and humor. Jim Northrupis an award-winning journalist, poet, and playwright.
