"The narrator of this beautiful, often disquieting novel is a young Native American man living on the Fort Belknap Reservation in Montana. Sensitive and self-destructive, he searches for something that will bind him to the lands of his ancestors but is haunted by personal tragedy, the dissolution of his once proud heritage, and Montana's vast emptiness. Winter in the Blood is an evocative and unforgettable work of literature that will continue to move and inspire anyone who encounters it"-- Provided by publisher.

Along with "Fools Crow," this is the Montana writer James Welch's signature novel. Short, but compelling, its protagonist suffers from both a personal tragedy and the tragedy of Native Americans in this country. You'll also want to check out the novels of Louise Erdrich, who wrote the introduction for the Penguin edition. I think it was made into a film.
