    Radio Bookclub: Winter Counts

    The October selection for the Radio Bookclub is Winter Counts by author David Heska Wanbli Weiden. The book tells the story of Virgil Wounded Horse, the local enforcer on the Rosebud Indian Reservation in South Dakota. When justice is denied by the American legal system or the tribal council, Virgil is hired to deliver his own punishment. But when heroin makes its way into the reservation and finds Virgil’s nephew, his vigilantism becomes personal.
