Listing Detail Tabs

This is an auction for THE BUFFALO SOLDIER by Chris Bohjalian.

“Bohjalian crafts a masterful story of loss and love set against the vagaries of northern Vermont's weather. Highly recommended.”
- Library Journal (US

“In The Buffalo Soldier, Bohjalian proves once again that he's a master novelist.”
- Boston Globe

“Bohjalian plunges his characters into a dramatic situation so powerful that even their quiet voices cannot fail to be heard. . . .The Buffalo Soldier is imbued with hope and the possibility for redemption.”
- Washington Post

“Bohjalian gives us fine-grained detail and beautifully observed domestic psychology.”
- Los Angeles Times

“Beautifully wrought. . . . A moving account of personal strength and the joy of belonging.”
- San Francisco Chronicle

“Terry and Laura Sheldon are devastated when they lose their 9-year-old twin daughters in a flood that ravages their small Vermont town. They manage to keep their strained marriage together, and, two years after the girls' deaths, decide to take in a foster child. Alfred, a withdrawn 10-year-old African American boy, is not what they expected, and he doesn't seem to grow attached to either of them. The Sheldons' neighbours, Paul and Emily Herbert, take an interest in the lonely boy, and Paul shares his horse with Alfred as well as a book about the Buffalo Soldiers, an African American regiment from the late 19th century. The subtle grace of Bohjalian's storytelling keeps the story away from cheap sentimentality; instead, one finds quiet insightfulness and complex characterization.”
