Rabbit Boss is a landmark work of twentieth-century American literature. A novel of dreams dying, the loss of power, the rebirth of the spirit, it is the most brilliant fictional evocation of the American West ever written. Powerful and exalting, Rabbit Boss tells the story of four generations of Washo in the California and Nevada Sierra.

"The Indian experience of the last 120 years...Rabbit Boss is of a size and scope that is awesome. Sanchez is a man of tremendous vision." -- Robert Kirsch, Los Angeles Times

"Rabbit Boss deserves to become an American classic. A great novel, spanning a century in the life and death of an Indian tribe, told with epic perspective and infinite compassion."

-- National Observer

"Etched in unforgettable prose...Sanchez is to be congratulated."

-- Vine Deloria, Jr., author of Custer Died For Your Sins
