William Vollmann’s ‘The Dying Grass’ is the reading experience of a lifetime

The story of the Nez Perce War of 1877 seems like a ready-made narrative for modern times. It pitted noble (but doomed) Indian Chief Joseph fighting for the survival of his people against a reluctant antagonist, Brig. Gen. Oliver Otis Howard, who was ordered to do his duty against his conscience. Their battle played out on the most imposing and picturesque landscapes that North America has to offer, with a still-relevant question — Can America preserve its dignity while rushing to embrace its destiny? — hovering in the air like smoke over a battlefield.

Thank You for your welcome! I like mysteries and thrillers. I enjoy watching crime television, its interesting to see how cases are sold. And also what types of things can cause a case to go unsolved. Real stories and the entertainment shows as well. How about you?
