I just finished The Lesser Blessed
a "coming of age" story in the tradition of the SE Hinton books, except it takes place in the NW Territory and involves Natives. It's a short intense read, like a dusk to dawn road trip.
I also just finished The Lords of the Realm, a good read on Baseball and the labor movement. Next I'm going to read Nobody's Fool or High Fidelity, I haven't decided.
