The work of wolves

Our book club just discussed The Work of Wolves by Kent Meyers. Described as ‘an expansive novel of great emotional depth,’ this book delivers a powerful read.

Set in South Dakota, the author establishes the conflict between a powerful and evil rancher and a teenaged boy with an uncommon understanding and focus for horses. Their drama draws in two  native American teenagers struggling with cross cultural challenges on and off the reservation and a German exchange student uncovering his own legacy from WWII to weave a powerful story exploring themes of fathers/sons, spirituality, love/cruelty and more.

Recommended by Nancy Simpson of the Book Vault in Oskaloosa, The Work of Wolves is one of the best books I’ve read this year.
