Opinion

From Library Staff

Aaron's writing and Guerra's artwork make the pain, poverty, and struggles of Native American reservation life leap off the page. A very non-romantic snapshot, but with great characters and a locomotive story, this series is an excellent companion to Ian Frazier's "On The Rez."
