The Work of Wolves
The Work of Wolves | Kent Meyers
3 posts | 3 read | 11 to read
When fourteen-year-old Carson Fielding bought his first horse from Magnus Yarborough, it became clear that the teenager was a better judge of horses than the rich landowner was of humans. Years later, Carson, now a skilled and respected horse trainer, grudgingly agrees to train Magnus's horses and teach his wife to ride. But as Carson becomes disaffected with the power-hungry Magnus, he also grows more and more attracted to the rancher's wife, and their relationship sets off a violent chain of events that unsettles their quiet reservation border town in South Dakota. Thrown into the drama are Earl Walks Alone, an Indian trying to study his way out of the reservation and into college, and Willi, a German exchange student confronting his family's troubled history. In this unforgettable story of horses, love, and life, Carson and the entire ensemble of characters learn, in very different ways, about the strong bonds that connect people to each other and to the land on which they live.

I don‘t remember who recommended this book to me for #SouthDakota in the #ReadingUSA2019 challenge but I really loved it. All different worlds come together (the wild west, an Indian reservation and Nazi Germany) in this western about friendship and horses. Very atmospheric, very little is said but with so much meaning.
The book gets hardly any attention here on Litsy but it‘a absolutely worth reading.

squirrelbrain Sounds like a good one! Stacked anyway, even though I don‘t need South Dakota! 2mo

Hard for me to read. I don't know if it was the writing style or what but my dog's state says what I did when I opened this book

The next couple books. At least there's noise in the background
