Ree Dolly's father has skipped bail on charges that he ran a crystal meth lab, and the Dollys will lose their house if he doesn't show up for his next court date. With two young brothers depending on her, 16-year-old Ree knows she has to bring her father back, dead or alive. Living in the harsh poverty of the Ozarks, Ree learns quickly that asking questions of the rough Dolly clan can be a fatal mistake. But, as an unsettling revelation lurks, Ree discovers unforeseen depths in herself and in a family network that protects its own at any cost. "The lineage from Faulkner to Woodrell runs as deep and true as an Ozark stream in this book...his most profound and haunting yet." -- Los Angeles Times Book Review

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Woodrell’s Old Testament prose and blunt vision have a chilly timelessness that suggests this novel will speak to readers as long as there are readers.”  New York Times Book Review
“The lineage from Faulkner to Woodrell runs as deep and true as an Ozark stream in this book…his most profound and haunting yet.”  Los Angeles Times Book Review
“Heroines this inspiring don’t come along often. When they do, they deserve our attention.”  People 
“Sometimes brutal, sometimes mordantly funny, sometimes surprisingly sweet…I just didn’t want Winter’s Bone to end.”  St. Louis Post Dispatch
“Daniel Woodrell has produced another stunner, a bleak, beautifully told story about the inescapable bonds of land and blood—fiction at its finest.”  Kansas City Star
“The plot of Winter’s Bone is uncomplicated, yet it packs a kind of biblical, Old West, Cormac McCarthy wallop—hard and deep.”  Cleveland Plain Dealer 
“Woodrell’s prose mixes tough and tender so thoroughly yet so delicately that we never taste even a hint of false bravado, on the one hand, or sentimentality, on the other.” Booklist (starred review)
“Woodrell’s prose, lyrical as often as dialogic, creates an unwieldy but alluring narrative that allows him to draw moments of unexpected tenderness.”  Publishers Weekly
“In spare but evocative prose, Woodrell depicts a harsh world in which the responsibilities for survival ultimately give Rees meaning and direction. He depicts the landscape, people, and dialects with stunning realism. A compelling testament to how people survive in the worst of circumstances.” School Library Journal
