Author David Treuer talks to Charlie Pulkrabek about his new book "Rez Life."
Leech Lake Indian writer, David Treuer, has a new book, “Rez Life”. The author of three novels and one collection of essays, “Rez Life” is his first full length work of non-fiction. In the book, Treuer addresses tough and controversial subjects like treaty rights and relations with non-Indians; and the corruption and shortcomings of tribal governments and leadership. He skillfully weaves valuable historical data into narratives that tie the large historical and legal issues he writes about to the lives of contemporary Indians living in Minnesota. Charlie Pulkrabek has an in depth conversation with Treuer at the Cass Lake Library.
