"From one of the most original voices of the past several years comes a powerful story of brutal violence and righteous vengeance. Set on a reservation in southern Minnesota, THE RED CANOE unflinchingly explores the challenges of racial prejudice and sexual predation faced by an extraordinary Native teenager. Master storyteller Wayne Johnson has crafted this tale with both compassion and wisdom, and keeps the suspense building relentlessly toward the novel's bitter cold and enormously satisfying climax."--William Kent Krueger, New York Times bestselling author of THIS TENDER LAND
"Heart-warming and gut- wrenching. A nuanced, superbly written justice thriller laced with unflinching grit and social commentary."--Booklist (Starred Review)
"A powerful story of Indigenous people who are abused but also determined to battle brutality and corruption themselves when they can't rely on the authorities."--Library Journal (Starred Review)
"Simultaneously heartbreaking and heart-pounding, THE RED CANOE is a gritty and yet tender novel about an unrelenting pursuit for justice, redemption, and revenge. With nods to classic noir, westerns, action movies, and wilderness survival stories, this novel has a cast of misfit unlikely heroes you'll root for 'til the bloody end."--Tara Laskowski, award-winning author of THE MOTHER NEXT DOOR
"Intriguing...Readers will care enough about Buck and Lucy to see how they fare."--Publishers Weekly
