RABBIT BOSS -- an epic, poignant, and lyrical novel spanning four generations of the Washo tribe in the California and Nevada Sierra
Rabbit Boss by Thomas Sanchez (1973, Alfred A. Knopf; 468 pages)
Spanning a century in the life and death of an Indian tribe, this legendary, epic novel tells the story of four generations of the Washo in the California and Nevada Sierra. It is a novel of dreams dying, the loss of power, the rebirth of the spirit, and one of the most brilliant fictional evocations of the American West ever written. Panoramic in scale and powerful in its impact, Rabbit Boss was cited by The San Francisco Chronicle as, "one of the most important books of the 20th century," by The New York Times as "a novel of epic dimensions," and by Vanity Fair as "a landmark of our literature."
This is a dense book, rich in myth, legend, and tragic reality. Though we don't have a copy in our collection, the book is available to our patrons from one of our consortium libraries. It is well worth the read.
