    I love Kent Meyer's long gaze across endless space

    I first read Twisted Tree at the end of 2009. I found it fascinating in the different viewpoints, in how the events unfolded from the different perceptions of different characters. The book was a combination of small town story telling method, the and the very long view of the philospher, steeped in Dakotas realities: weather, distance, loneliness, time to think and too much time to think.

    I then ordered Work of Wolves, and was even more impressed, for the same reasons and others. Kent Meyers' observations of animals is keen (I keep and love horses and they do define your life with their grace and the sadness of their dependency on us), and I savored his words. His characters were fascinating, I loved the description of the land -- I could see it all like I was sitting up at the water tower watching all the events unfold (read the book and you will understand).

    A wonderful book, not just for (or even for, at all) people who like "Westerns." This is, quite simply, a lyrical tale of what honor looks like and means when there is no reasonable choice for action. It broke my heart, and informed my moral compass, and it was beautiful to read.

    Thought provoking

    This is one of the best books I have read in some time. The writing itself is wonderful. The story is both inspiring and unpredictable. Kent Meyers takes an insightful and respectful approach to very different characters as they seek to cope and make sense of their difficult lives. In the end, it leaves one with a sense of hope.

    This is essentially a story of fathers and sons, of honor and courage despite broken hearts and unfulfilled dreams. The author's craft in weaving a story about Carson, Earl and Willi, three very different characters, is masterful. Faced with a crisis, the characters follow their personal code of honor to resolve an ugly situation. A wonderful tale. Interesting to learn about the Lakota tribe and Nazi Germany. I read this in three nights and am recommending it to men and women alike.
