This was Thomas Sanchez's first novel (1973), written during an enviable period in which he and his wife lived as expatriates in an isolated part of Spain. It's a Northern California Native American history--the kind of book that would probably be impossible to publish today (although people said the same thing in the 70s when it was published). The style is richly textured--less voluble than Sanchez's later work--and the intergenerational plot dramatic but slow-moving (in a good way).

THOMAS SANCHEZ'S international bestseller, MILE ZERO, set in Key West, was hailed by the Washington Post as a "holy terror of a book of immense power and passion," lauded by Vanity Fair as "mythmaking and magisterial," and acclaimed by the New York Times as "dazzling. SANCHEZ returns to Key West, America's famous Southernmost Continental point, with a heart-racing ecological thriller, AMERICAN TROPIC.

Rabbit Boss - Thomas Sanchez. I enjoyed this book and its' great insight into Native Americans. It did a great job of showing how badly we treated the Indians. I just didn't think that this added that much to the book. That being said, I think this book should be compulsory reading for history classes on America in the 19th and 20th centures.

The legendary, epic novel tells the story of four generations of the Washo in Nevada and Eastern California--a story of dreams, dying, the loss of power, death and apotheosis.

An older book, but still and excellent read.
Juxtaposition of the demise of the Washoe Indians with the Donner party...

Rabbit Boss is a remarkable novel that jumps back and forth in time across generations to create a tapestry of the lives of the Washoe Indians of Nevada and Eastern California from the arrival of the Donner Party up to the 1930s. While doing that it also has a forceful and moving appreciation for the Tahoe area and the changes it has undergone in what in historical perspective is a relatively short span of time demonstrated by the generational threads represented in the various segments of the book. The profound changes that the native peoples of the area experienced is so well represented by the characters that Thomas Sanchez introduces us to in this book. As the narrative shifts in time each vignette he relates can almost stand on its own the language is so evocative. In the end what emerges is an appreciation for a vanished culture in a landscape that retains its beauty and power today even though it has gone through so much change in such a relatively short time. This is an unforgettable novel.

The person who gave this a 1 Star Review as 'tedious' actually has a point: it really does take time and effort to get into it. I really am pleased though that I persevered though. A rich tapestry of interconnected stories that takes effort to appreciate.

"The Washoe watched." Thus begins the tale that the NEW YOK TIMES listed as one of the 100 best books of the Twentieth century. It has the beauty of a Shakesperean tragedy, marvelous comic passages, and a Washoe family you will embrace. With care and restraint, despite his vivid prose, Sanchez traces exactly what happened to the Washow nation of American Indians after the white man arrived. - Ann Seymour

I read almost continually and rapidly yet it took me four tries to get through this book. There seems to be some value in the recounting of some Washoe Indians who lose their culture in the struggle with encroaching white society but it is told in a manner that rambles about with poor identification or transition between time periods related. There are far to many steam of consciousness passages. Worst of all, this is an extremely tedious book to read!

Tedious.
This novel put the author's name on my must-read list. It is a powerful story of the effect of white culture on the native American. Starting with an encounter with the Donner party, it continues down to the early 30's. Parts of the novel are written in a visionary style similar to "Black Elk Speaks." There are numerous memorable characters, especially Hallelujah Bob and Captain Rex, who loses his thumbs. There is violence and tragedy. Sanchez has an excellent ear for dialogue, especially considering that this book was written when he was only 21. I have read this book three times (at over 500 pages) and recommend it to all my friends.
