characters Winter's Bone review Winter's Bone ä PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Who has grown up in the harsh poverty of the Ozarks learns uickly that asking uestions of the rough Dolly clan can be a fatal mistake She perseveres past obstacles of every kind and finally confronts the top figures in the family's hierarchyAlong the way to a shocking revelation Ree discovers unexpected depths in herself and in a family network that protects its own at any co. My introduction to the fiction of Daniel Woodrell is Winter s Bone and what a strong introduction Published in 2006 it logs somewhere between a novella and short novel at only 45883 words but the remnants left behind conjure such a strong sense of environment and of a gritty female protagonist struggling to survive in that environment that I felt like I d walked a mile in her shoes in the snow trucking water pails both ways The literary ambitions of the novel are impossible to tamper down but rather than overwhelm the story or characters the prose brings them into the light with both menace and wonderSet in Missouri in the Rathlin Valley near the Arkansas state line the story introduces sixteen year old Ree Dolly as her father Jessup a gifted meth cook out on bond from his latest arrest leaves home never to return Ree assumes responsibility for what remains of the family a scrappy ten year old half brother named Sonny a sensitive eight year old brother named Harold and their mother Connie an able bodied invalid who s retreated into the world of her mind casually referred to as crazy by the two hundred or so Dollys Lockrums Boshells Tankerslys and Langans linked by blood or marriage and living in poverty within thirty miles of the valleyA sheriff s deputy named Baskin pays a visit to Ree delivering the boys from the spot where the school bus was halted by snow Talking to John Law can be hazardous to one s health in the valley but rather than ask Ree where her father has run off to the deputy brings news that Ree s daddy put their ancestral home on Mom s side the Bromont side as well as their timber acres up as collateral for his bond If Jessup Dolly fails to turn up for his court date next week the property will be sold by the county Ree maintains her composure and assures Baskin that she ll find her father She d start with Uncle Teardrop though Uncle Teardrop scared her He lived three miles down the creek but she walked on the railroad tracks Snow covered the tracks and made humps over the rails and the twin humps guided her She broke her own trail through the snow and booted the miles from her path The morning sky was gray and crouching the wind had snap and drew water to her eyes She wore a green hooded sweatshirt and Mamaw s black coat Ree nearly always wore a dress or skirt but with combat boots and the skirt this day was bluish plaid Her knees kicked free of the plaid when she threw her long legs forward and stomped the snowRee finds a sympathetic ear with her aunt Victoria her favorite of all Dolly women short of Mom but is told in no uncertain terms by her menacing uncle not to go looking for her father Uncle Teardrop has been a meth cook longer than his younger brother but lost his ear and melted the left side of his back in a chemical mishap Ignoring her uncle s warning Ree proposes going to Hawkfall Valley to see if the crew her father was working with know something but has her head yanked back by her uncle for emphasis He gives his niece fifty dollars and another warning for Ree to stay close to the willowsClimbing a ridge and crossing a meadow blanketed by snow Ree arrives at the home of her best friend Gail Lockrum who already has a four month old baby and a useless husband who d rather be with his girlfriend Ree recalls her father s girlfriend a kindy garden teacher in town and asks Gail if she can get the keys to her husband s truck to drive her there The answer is no Ree hitches a ride with the school bus driver and is dropped off in Hawkfall The way people aren t talking to Ree convinces her that her father has been killed and no one wants to talk to her about itRee is left with no alternative but to seek the help of Thump Milton a Milton family patriarch and a terrifying grizzled coot Ree waits in his yard for an hour before being turned out notified by his wife that he knows everywhere Ree has been today and why she s here and to leave Ree who s talked about leaving the willows to join the army one day receives an offer from Sonny s rapscallion father to take the boy in with Uncle Teardrop taking Harold Seeing no future for either of her brothers by abandoning them Ree puts her life in Thump Milton s hands by returning to Hawkfall for another try at him Ree has to be carried out The women of Rathlin Valley began crossing the creek to view her even as she lay in the tub Sonya led Betsy and Caradoc Dolly s widow Permelia who owned the third house in the rank of three on the far bank into the bathroom and closed the door on the paled waiting boys with their stricken faces Ree lay with her good eye open a peep in water skimmed thinly with suds The women stood in a cluster looking down at the colored bruises on milk skin the lumped eye the broken mouth Their lips were tight and they shook their heads Permelia ancient but mobile witness to a hundred wounds said There s never no call to do a girl like thatWord for word Winter s Bone may be one of the finest novels that I ve read There s a harrowing precision to it Woodrell has such a command of this landscape and the family trees populating it that he could ve written a novel three or four times the length of this one I m glad he didn t There isn t an indulgence to be found here Instead of telling reader about what happened to characters or occurred between them in the past he focuses on what they re feeling now There s some trust there but the prose is also strong enough to fill in those spaces Then there s Ree Dolly who Woodrell seems to respect enough to make the star attraction of every page While frosty bits gathered in her hair and on her shoulders she raised the volume of those ocean sounds Ree needed often to inject herself with pleasant sounds stab those sounds past the constant screeching sualling hubbub regular life raised inside her spirit poke those soothing sounds past that racket and down deep where her jittering soul paced on a stone slab on a gray room agitated and endlessly provoked but yearning to hear something that might bring a moment s rest The tapes had been given to Mom who already heard too many puzzling sounds and did not care to confront these but Ree tried them and felt something unknot She also favored The Sounds of Tranuil Streams The Sounds of Tropical Dawn and Alpine DuskThe novels I read I don t know if what marks a great character is an arc but consistency Ree is a rock that forces the stream around her to change course not the other way around She s kin to Mattie Ross of True Grit also a teenager in making up her mind and sticking to it The forces that Woodrell puts in Ree s path are formidable and her vulnerability is palpable The inner fortitude of the character and her extreme disorientation at changes taking place around her weren t entirely translated to screen with Debra Granik adapting and directing a solid film version in 2010 that introduced audiences to Jennifer Lawrence and made her a star The novel is a better
