"Born with no air in his lungs, it was only when Reuben Land's father, Jeremiah, picked him up and commanded him to breathe that Reuben's lungs filled. Reuben struggles with debilitating asthma from then on, making him a boy who knows firsthand that life is a gift, and also one who suspects that his father is touched by God and can overturn the laws of nature. The quiet 1960's midwestern life of the Lands is upended when Reuben's brother Davy kills two marauders who have come to harm the family. The morning of his sentencing, Davy -- a hero to some, a cold-blooded murderer to others -- escapes from his cell, and the Lands set out in search of him. Their journey is touched by serendipity and the kindness of strangers, and they cover territory far more extraordinary than even the Badlands where they search for Davy from their Airstream trailer"--Container.… (més)

What a gorgeous book. I found myself rationing chapters to make it last longer and thinking about the really difficult situations and personal struggles this book brings up. I'm not a religious person, but this book almost could make me find religion. I highly recommend giving it a try. ( )

I have this on my shelf for years and thought I will never read this. Finally picked it up cos there is an e-version. Turns out to be quite a fascinating story though certain descriptions of nature were difficult to understand. A man who experiences miracles, wrestles with God, and even exchanged his life with his son. Don't think I will come across a book like this again (in terms of the subject matter). ( )

I know this book is suppose to be really good and I thought it was well written but for some reason it didn't resonate with me. ( )

A coming-of-age story in 1960s Minnesota/North Dakota of a boy who has to deal with a religious father and a brother on the run. Interesting language, esp with the young sister writing Western epics while the family tries to catch up with their own outlaw. While it felt like the book started to drag towards the end, the ending itself took me by surprise. ( )

To Robin
The country ahead is as wild a spread
As ever we're likely to see

The horses are dancing to start the advance--
Won't you ride on with me?

From my first breath in this world, all I wanted was a good set of lungs and the air to fill them with - given circumstances, you might presume, for an American baby of the twentieth century.

So thoughtlessly we sling on our destinies.
Thinking of supper, I asked, “You want us to do anything, Dad?”
“Persevere,” he said.
I’m sorry if you thought better of me, but the fact is I spent whole hours imagining alarming humiliations for those kids - big dumb kids, always with effortless all-star lungs. … It’s true. No grudge ever had a better nurse.
I couldn’t put words to it, but Swede, as usual, could.
This still happens with Swede and me. I’ll lack a word, and she’ll dump out a bushel of them.
“My sympathies,” Dad said. “Appreciated but gratuitous,” the woman replied – and Swede would have loved her forever for that phrase alone –
