The Independence of Eddie Rose
By William S. Yellow Robe, Jr.

The Story: This Native American drama tells the story of a teenage boy confronted with the challenges of family alcoholism and domestic violence. Eddie is forced to choose between the learned way of a broken society and traditional values of the Red Road. While pursuing self-discovery, he saves his younger sister and, with the help of his aunt's wisdom, works to save his family.
The Spotlight Reading series is made possible in part by a grant from The Joyce Foundation.
