Resistance by Barry Lopez, Alan Magee

From the National Book Award-winning author of Arctic Dreams, a highly charged, stunningly original work of fiction–a passionate response to the changes shaping our country today. In nine fictional testimonies, men and women who have resisted the mainstream and who are now suddenly “parties of interest” to the government tell their stories.A young woman in Buenos Aires watches bitterly as her family dissolves in betrayal and illness, but chooses to seek a new understanding of compassion rather than revenge. A carpenter traveling in India changes his life when he explodes in an act of violence out of proportion to its cause. The beginning of the end of a man’s lifelong search for coherence is sparked by a Montana grizzly. A man blinded in the war in Vietnam wrestles with the implications of his actions as a soldier–and with innocence, both lost and regained.Punctuated with haunting images by acclaimed artist Alan Magee, Resistance is powerful fiction with enormous significance for our times.

Barry Lopez always makes me happy I've taken the time to consult the dictionary - I always learn something new from him. This book is another of his eloquent writings that makes me think differently - can't ask for more than that, but I get his poetic writing as a bonus. Thank you Barry Lopez!

an interrelated group of stories about individuals finding their true meaning in an often complicated and misguided world. the characters are intriguing and provide a road map for one's own travels on the road of life. these characters live somewhat outside the mainstram of life. different and fascinating.
