Scott and Karl finish their discussion of Dorothy M. Johnson’s Indian Country, a collection of some of the greatest short stories about the American West. Scott says, "I don't want to talk about the book too much because it's that good. I love the characters, I love the setting, I love Dorothy Johnson, I love the themes, I love the style."

While this work is out of print, the duo agrees it is worth your while to hunt down a used copy and have a read. Each of the eleven tales shines with implicity, Karl calls them "iceberg stories" because there is so much in them that isn't written.

Tune in to hear the rest of Scott and Karl's conversation about Dorothy Johnson's skillful presentation of early frontier life. Brought to you by onlinegreatbooks.com.
