What People are saying about this
James WelchIn The Woman Who Lives in the Earth, Swain Wolfe introduced himself as a writer of great imagination and sensitivity. Now, in The Lake Dreams the Sky, he proves himself to be a storyteller of awesome proportions. This is truly one of those books you can't put down.
David James DuncanThe Lake Dreams the Sky is about the clash between a remnant tribal culture and the non-culture of the Western town. But greater than its clash is its sentence-by-sentence music. Swain Wolfe's voice -- with its quiet slippings into myth, eroticism, vision, dream -- bends the mind the way a prism bends light or a blues man his guitar strings. . . .
Sandra ScofieldSwain Wolfe's irresistible novel entrances the reader with a silken ribbon of narrative and a warm, generous voice . . . about the wonderful setting, the pleasures of falling in love, and the tensile bond between women of kin. . . . The story pierces the reader with the pain of discovering just what it means to be an outlaw, just how dangerous it is to break the rules.
Celia McGeeA soaring departure from his earlier writing that nonetheless draws on all the strengths and specialness of that first work . . . The Lake Dreams the Sky is an astonishment of tragic Americana and sees with a singular vision the complications of love, nature, heroism, and art.
