Winter's Bone

A Novel
By Daniel Woodrell (Trade Paperback, 2010)
Ree Dolly's father has skipped bail on charges that he ran a crystal meth lab, and the Dollys will lose their house if he doesn't show up for his next court date. With two young brothers depending on her, 16-year-old Ree knows she has to bring her father back, dead or alive. Living in the harsh poverty of the Ozarks, Ree learns quickly that asking questions of the rough Dolly clan can be a fatal mistake. But, as an unsettling revelation lurks, Ree discovers unforeseen depths in herself and in a family network that protects its own at any cost.

  • "Sometimes brutal, sometimes mordantly
    funny, sometimes surprisingly sweet . . .I
    just didn't want WINTER'S BONE to
    end." (St. Louis Post Dispatch).

  • "Woodrell's Old Testament prose and blunt
    vision have a chilly timelessness that
    suggests this novel will speak to readers as
    long as there are readers." (New York Times Book Review).

  • "Heroines this inspiring don't come along
    often. When they do, they deserve our
    attention." (People).

  • "The plot of WINTER'S BONE is
    uncomplicated, yet it packs a kind of
    biblical, Old West, Cormac McCarthy
    wallop--hard and deep." (Cleveland Plain Dealer).

  • "A courageous, audacious, resourceful 16-
    year-old girl destined to enter the pantheon
    of literature's heroines." (Atlanta Journal Constitution).
