Praise For A Man of His Village

"The most original and gripping work of fiction set in Alaska that I have ever read."

--Mike Dunham, Anchorage Daily News

"A descent into savagery that makes 'Lord of the Flies' look like a kindergarten skirmish ... an adventure far more inevitable and gruesome than anything Stephen King ever wrote."

--Sandra Boatwright, Fairbanks Daily News-Miner

"A masterful job of bringing face and personality to a volatile political issue ... riveting and genuine ... has left an indelible mark on my thinking."

--Richard R. Blake, Reader Views

"A beautiful page-turner of a novel, full of rich and generous insights. You'll long remember Florentino, whose dreams carry him far from his impoverished homeland, deep into hell. Like Jack London and John Steinbeck, Tanyo Ravicz looks closely at the ties binding the powerful and the powerless in the West ... First-rate realism from a fine new voice in American fiction."

--Jean Anderson, author of In Extremis and Other Alaskan Stories
