This coming of age story is rich in quirky characters and beautifully realized natural environments. Century, Oregon, in 1900 at first seems a bit the stereotypical prairie town of the era. However, Keesey develops a tale that examines forms of identity, community, loss and self awareness. Surprisingly, I was reading concurrently an article about the early years of the state of Israel and finding many parallels! Enjoy this book!
