Summary
Story of Coeur d'Alene Indian boys from Idaho: Victor is the stoic, handsome son of an alcoholic father who has abandoned his family. Thomas is a gregarious, goofy young man orphaned as an infant by a fire which Victor's father accidentally started while drunk. Thomas is a storyteller who makes every effort to connect with the people around him. Victor, in contrast, uses his quiet demeanor to gain strength and confidence. When Victor's estranged father dies in Arizona, the two young men embark on a journey to recover his ashes. Along the way the two learn a number of life lessons from each other and those around them
