Narrated by a young Native American living on the Fort Belknap Reservation in Montana, Winter in the Blood is the unforgettable story of a man living out the tragedy of his people. Intelligent sensitive, and self destructive he is haunted by the untimely deaths of his father and older brother and the shards of his once proud heritage. He sleepwalks through his days working on his stepfather's cattle ranch and consoles himself with alcohol and women. An ironic epiphany provides a tie to the vast land of his ancestors and an alternative to despair.

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.
