At the End of Ridge RoadBook - 2005
"At the End of the Ridge Road traces Joseph Bruchac's path from "nature nut" to jock to writer, to his home at the end of Ridge Road near where he was raised by his grandparents. This colorful memoir from one of our best-known Native American writers explores the links between Bruchac's native Abenaki culture and his long-held views on human dignity and social justice." "Asking readers to remove their watches so they might "live time" rather than be ruled by it, Bruchac tells his own story - one that sits at the crossroads of his Abenaki and European heritage. From the foot of Glass Factory Mountain to the halls of Cornell, from a classroom in West Africa to a start-up literary magazine in a room of his grandfather's home, Bruchac superimposes Native American ways of seeing upon the structure of today's world. Bruchac believes the essential wisdom of native cultures, the balance of nature, and the power of a well-told story each holds ways to avoid humanity's most destructive impulses."--BOOK JACKET.
