Medicine Walk ~ Richard Wagamese

medicine walkFollowing the success of Richard Wagamese’s national bestseller Indian Horse comes this universally resonant novel of a father and son that is at once heartbreaking and redemptive.

Franklin Starlight is called to visit his father, Eldon, the kid, Frank, is 16 years old and has had only the most fleeting of relationships with his real father.  The rare moments they’ve shared haunt and trouble him, but Frank answers t he call, a son’s duty.  He finds Eldon decimated after years of drinking.

Written in clear, luminous prose, Medicine Walk looks squarely into the dark corners of the soul, into the human capacity for love and goodness, no matter the stakes.  Richard Wagamese’s insight and compassion are matched by his remarkable gifts of storytelling and ability to create characters that will live in our hearts long after the last page is turned.

And yes,  we are so happy Richard is going to be at the Writer’s Festival this summer.
