What am I reading?

After having lunch with Chaske Spender yesterday, I was curious to find out more about a new movie that he is due to star in called Winter in the Blood (a movie based upon the first novel of James Welch which was first published in 1974). Chaske was so passionate while he was talking about the story that I had to learn more.

Winter in the Blood is a novel about the modern life of an American Indian. This novel takes a look at Indians through the eyes of someone who has lived this life and knows it better than most writers of this novel type. The plot follows the plight of a young man who has lost his sense of identity due to his heritage, family secrets, and the death of his brother. The young man accidentally discovers some truths about his family's past and this information finally frees him to discover the man he really is. It is a novel full of truth and hope. bookrags

I have decided to read the book before it's made into a movie and I will post my review in the coming months. To follow the process of this move visit the Facebook page or blog.

Happy reading ~ Kelly
