Rez Life by David Treuer

Part memoir, part journalism, and part history, David Treuer’s Rez Life uses his novelist eye to talk to reservation life from past to present. Treuer, a member of the Ojibwe tribe of northern Minnesota, grew up on Leech Lake reservation but was educated in mainstream America. Whether he is writing about the labyrinth of policy that goes into a fishing treaty, or the circumstances surrounding his grandfather’s death, Treuer explores how poverty, politics, and preservation of native language and culture are constant struggles of crisis—but also enduring and courageous ways of life.
