Will Weaver has published nine award-winning books of fiction, most recently Barns of Minnesota and the novel Full Service. Several of his stories have been produced for radio and film. He lives and writes in Bemidji, Minnesota.From School Library Journal:
YA Unresolved relationships with his family and friends and a heritage of farming come into focus when Guy Pehrsson, a California computer entrepreneur, returns to Minnesota 12 years after he ran away at age 18. His childhood ``blood brother,'' Tom Little Wolf, a Chippewa Indian, is now a tribal lawyer intent on reclaiming farmlands mishandled in past treaties, lands which include the Pehrsson's homestead. This conflict tests but never breaks the bond between the two men. Guy puts his life in perspective and sees that he and the men in his family have often used land or machines to distance themselves from people. This apocalyptic first novel is rich in the colors and characters of contemporary rural Minnesota, and spiced with Indian lore and legend. Back country road shenanigans with cars and tractors and sheriffs and Indians add a touch of Dukes of Hazzard to the story. Characters who are able to laugh at themselves also add comic relief to a sensitive and moving novel of a man's emotional growth.Keddy Outlaw, Harris County Public Library, Houston
