Overview

A memoir of a father's pain, humor, and healing as he learns to embrace a new masculinity "down West."How does a white male, raised in the hardscrabble culture of the West, learn to raise a young daughter on his own? In this unconventional memoir, contemporary Native American scholar Kenneth Lincoln relates his struggle to embrace a new masculinity in the late twentieth century. Through a poignant combination of poems, letters, and his own unique voice, Lincoln shares the story of his life-the death of family and close friends, love, divorce, depression, and through it all, the headstrong daughter who becomes the center of his world.
