Wildlife Author:Richard Ford Great Falls, Montana, is where the Rockies end and where, in 1960, the Brinson family hopes to find a better life. Instead, sixteen-year-old Joe Brinson watches his parents discover the limits of their marriage and, at the same time, the unexpected depths of dignity and courage that remain even when love dies.
This book is written from the perspective of a sixteen year old boy who truly loves his parents and is struggling to understand them and the world in which he lives. The writing style is straightforward and void of easy answers or romanticized endings. I enjoyed it greatly and recommend it highly.
