Once again I was wowed by Gary Paulsen. The Night the White Deer Died is one of those books that adults should read and will be blown away by the simplicity and power of his words.
A short book, that packs a punch about a young Anglo girl falling in love with an old Native American man.
Complex and simple at the same time. Like poetry. Pure Paulsen.
What's Going On Here?
There are SO MANY wonderful book review blogs out there and I can't compete with them, that is for sure. So this is not a book review blog. This is just a way for me to organize what I have read so that I can be better at matching the right book to the right person. The blog title comes from the brilliant mind of the most talented woman who ever lived, Ms. Judy Garland. The full quote is, "Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of someone else." That is what I hope to do here and in ever aspect of my life.
