Rez Life Author David Treuer

On February 14th, I had the privilege of meeting Rez Life Author David Treuer during his visit to Brainerd Minnesota as part of his recent national  book tour.   My client (and friend) Mary Aalgaard and I were both mesmerized by his knowledge, insight and uplifting message about Native life on the reservation.  The picture he gives reservation life is that of survival.  The book is as amazing as the reviews that have been written about it.   I hope you have a chance to meet him on his tour.  Make a point of it.  Read the book, too…and by all means, purchase it in your favorite local  book store!    Thanks, David, for making Brainerd Minnesota your first stop!

Rez Life is a different kind of book, a well researched mix of history, memoir and commentary that uses reservations to show how Indians got where they are today.  Treuer loathes sentiment and stereotypes, and the people whose stories he tells are layered and complex.” Pamela Miller-Minneapolis Star Tribune
