Red Earth, White Earth book. I finally bought this book because I kept checking it out of the library every few years. Will Weaver is a wonderful storyteller (he wrote the story that the film "Sweet land" is based on). He's in the upper echelon for me as Midwestern storytellers go, though he doesn't get the recognition. This book is dated, I admit.

Redirected from Red Earth, White Earth (book)). Red Earth, White Earth is a novel by Will Weaver, about conflicts between white farmers and native Ojibwes in northern Minnesota. The story follows Guy Pehrsson, a California computer entrepreneur who returns to Minnesota twelve years after he ran away at age eighteen. His childhood blood brother, Tom Little Wolf, is now a tribal lawyer intent on reclaiming farmlands mishandled in past treaties, lands which include the Pehrsson's homestead.

I have just finished Red Earth White Earth for the second time. The richness and poignancy with which the characters are developed is perfectly juxtaposed with that of Weaver's descriptions of the harsh but deeply beautiful Minnesota farmland. A magnificent story of what is natural in and around all of us. Popular Categories.

I thought it was kind of boring and stupid. I hope the book made more sense.

TV Movie Not Rated 95 min Drama. Guy Pehrsson is summoned by his grandfather to return to the farming community of his childhood. I thought it was kind of boring and stupid. Still, it is a look at the concept of Indian reservations. Most white people don't have anything to do with Indians and Indian reservations and stick with the status quo. Timothy Daly plays Guy Pehrsson, a young white man who has made his fortune in California making computer circuitboards.

Absolute masterpiece, just as good as Erdrich, and a wonderful exposition of people and place over time.
Other than "Barns of Minnesota," Mr. Weaver has moved into the adolescent market, in hopes of
getting teens to read. Our loss, their gain.

For many reasons, this is the best book I've ever read. Not only does the story take me through a gamut of emotions, but I love Will Weaver's writing and descriptions. He describes everyday things in ways that sound unique and lyrical. I have read this book several times and enjoy it more each time. Don't miss out on this one!

Could relate to the farmers and the natives. Liked the main characters growing up together and reacquainted in adulthood theme. A touch of sex added some spice. Interesting characters.

A great story about friendship, love, heartache, family, and remembering what's important in life.

Wonderful novel. Some of the descriptive language was lost on me as I did not grow up around farming and therefore am not familiar with common machinery, tools and other related things. Very important social issues. The alcoholism and racism that plague Native Americans across the nation ought not to be taken lightly as Weaver illustrates. Tactfully highlighted the tension felt by individuals conflicted between loyalty to family and moral obligations to end racism.

The book was in like new condition and the seller had packed it well. Interesting read.

There are some authors I no longer read because their work leaves me with a deep sense of hopelessness. Among these is Larry McMurtry, whose writing and story telling ability are superb, but whose life view seems to be a study in depressing shades of dark brown. I would remind such folk that the infamous box of Pandora was not empty after she opened it. The one thing that remained was hope.

Red Earth, White Earth was highly recommended by a friend and is quite well written. However, I could see where it was headed about a third of the way through and lost interest. Having read my work and knowing the gut wrenching depths to which I take my readers, my friend was disappointed in my response but understood my point. Without hope, life is a cruel joke. To me, ending in despair violates the reader.
I thoroughly enjoyed this story. The characters are real, interesting, and challenging. The story is compelling and either humorously serious or seriously funny.
