From the Publisher:
James Welch never shied away from depicting the lives of Native Americans damned by destiny and temperament to the margins of society. The Death of Jim Loney is no exception. Jim Loney is a mixed-blood, of white and Indian parentage. Estranged from both communities, he lives a solitary, brooding existence in a small Montana town. His nights are filled with disturbing dreams that haunt his waking hours. Rhea, his lover, cannot console him; Kate, his sister, cannot penetrate his world. In sparse, moving prose, Welch has crafted a riveting tale of disenfranchisement and self-destruction.
Author Bio
James Welch
A Blackfoot and Gros Ventre Indian, Welch is considered a pioneer and master of Native American fiction.

Jim Harrison was born in Michigan to parents who introduced him to the joys of reading when he was very young. When he was 7, he was blinded in one eye in a childhood accident, and he says he "turned for solace" to the natural landscape and to animals. He earned two degrees from the Michigan State University, and published his first book of poetry, "Plain Song", in 1965, while he was still in graduate school. He began writing poetry after another accident left him bedridden. He has also written short stories, screenplays, and non-fiction articles.

Praise

Civilization
"His first novel 'Winter in the Blood', and his second, 'The Death of Jim Loney', provide steady and penetrating looks at young Indian men whose spiritual blight and psychic paralysis are not confined to reservation life but are universal in their nature and causes." - Reynolds Price November-December 1994
