Two new books came into my house last week. How about you?
Bitter is the Wind by Jim McDermott. This coming-of-age, father/son novel is described as a "deft and timely deconstruction of the American dream." It's getting good reviews, like this one on Huffington Post.
Legends of the Northern Paiute, as told by Wilson Wewa, compiled and edited by James A. Gardner, published by OSU Press. This is the culmination of a cool project to preserve the previously unrecorded Northern Paiute legends. The picture on the cover is Monkey Face Rock in central Oregon.
