Sherman Alexie

So I have been reading a book that has just been released as an ebook by Open Road Media, by Sherman Wilkie. I just love the title, ‘The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven’. It is a collection of short stories about life on and around the Spokane Indian Reservation, and is a great read. I will be posting a review soon, but for now here is some information regarding the release, and the author, to whet your appetites. Well really, it is to get you frothing at the mouth in anticipation of the review, since I know how eager you all are to read my reviews.

First a little information about the author Sherman Alexie.

Sherman J. Alexie, Jr., was born in October 1966. A Spokane/Coeur d’Alene Indian, he grew up on the Spokane Indian Reservation in Wellpinit, WA, about 50 miles northwest of Spokane, WA. Alexie has published 18 books to date.

Alexie is an award-winning and prolific author and occasional comedian. Much of his writing draws on his experiences as a modern Native American. Sherman’s best known works include The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven, Smoke Signals, and The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian. He lives in Seattle, Washington.

  1. Thank you for this introduction. My great Grandmother was Cherokee Indian and she died at my grandfather’s birth. He was raised by a (wicked) stepmother, but always had a mystic aura about him. I would like to read these works. Great video.
