Book Description
 

THE WEIGHT OF DREAMS by Jonis Agee - SIGNED FIRST EDITION BOOK

Jonis Agee's acclaimed fiction has established her as a visceral, lyrical interpreter of the interplay between family legends and reality, the land and its inhabitants, the forces of nature and those of the human heart. Her landscapes are primitive, her characters intense and magnetic, her themes mythic even as she "celebrates the gritty, scarred layers of the daily world with specificity and wisdom" (Chicago Tribune)

Against the stunning backdrop of a vanishing West, The Weight of Dreams intertwines the passion and sweep of Larry McMurtry with a narrative of love and family as compelling as those of Rosellen Brown or Jane Hamilton. At seventeen, Ty Bonte's only escape from a harsh mother and violent father is his ranch work beneath the seasons of the Nebraska sandhills sky. But soon he must flee that too, when a bout of vandalism with his drinking buddy, Harney Rivers, ends in the brutal beating of a young Indian. Not until twenty years later, when Harney's reappearance shadows his life as a Kansas horse trader and his budding love for Dakota Carlyle, does Ty return to Nebraska to face the past. His quest for retribution, resolution, and redemption climaxes in a courtroom battle as furious and mesmerizing as his youthful wrangling on the range.

A novel of greed, power, and violence--from a "gifted poet of that dark lushness in the heart of the American landscape"--The New York Times Book Review
