John C. Wright

* Individual store prices may vary.


In The Crooked Tree we find a collection of authentic Indian legends. John Wright listened to his grandmother weave these legends of her people and as a result, we find that he has combined this nameless trait of the Indian storyteller with a sense of realism that makes one believe that the story actually happened.
