Reuben struggles with debilitating asthma from then on, making him a boy who knows firsthand that life is a gift, and also one who suspects that his father is touched by God and can overturn the laws of nature. The quiet 1960's Midwestern life of the Lands is upended when Reuben's brother Davy kills to marauders who have come to harm the family. The morning of his sentencing, Davy -- a hero to some, a cold-blooded murderer to others -- escapes from his cell, and the Lands set out in search of him. Their journey is touched by serendipity and the kindness of strangers, and they cover territory far more extraordinary than even the Badlands where they search for Davy from their Airstream trailer. Sprinkled with playful nods to Biblical tales, beloved classics such as Huckleberry Finn, the adventure stories of Robert Louis Stevenson, and the westerns of Zane Grey, Peace Like A River is at once a heroic quest, a tragedy, a love story, and a haunting meditation on the possibility of magic in the everyday world., Boys, Brothers, CD FIC ENGER, Compact discs., Digital content provided by hoopla., Domestic fiction., Electronic books., Eleven-year-old Reuben shares the story of how his father, trying to raise his sons alone in 1960s Minnesota, takes their family on a quest to find Reuben's older brother, who has been charged with murder., Enger, Leif., FIC ENGER, FIC008000, FICTION / Literary, FICTION / Sagas, Fathers and sons, Fugitives from justice, Hailed as one of the year's top five novels by Time, and selected as one of the best books of the year by nearly all major newspapers, national bestseller Peace Like a River captured the hearts of a nation in need of comfort., IG#A, Includes a reading group guide., Includes bibliographical references., Lowe, Chad,1968-|Narrator, Lowe, Chad.|Narrator, MWT11587726, MWT11777988, Made available through hoopla, Midwestrda, Minnesota, Mode of access: World Wide Web., Motherless families, New York :Grove Press ;[Berkeley, Calif.] :Distributed by Publishers Group West,[2002], New York :Harper Audio,p2008., NjBwBTNjBwBT, Originally published: New York : Atlantic Monthly Press, 2001., Outlaws, PS3555.N4223P42 2002, PS3555.N4223P42 2008, Peace like a river /Leif Enger., Peace like a riverLeif Enger., Read by Chad Lowe., TDSTDSTnLvILS, UACD 85Harper Audio, Unabridged., [United States]:Grove/Atlantic, Inc.,2007., [United States]:Harper Collins Publishers,2005., bl2008010168, computerc, data file, digital, eAudiobook hoopla, eBook hoopla, hoopla digital.,,, n-us-mn, online resourcecr, spoken wordspw, text file, texttxt
