“A Rez Tale” Virtual Reading Tour ends 2.16

‘A Rez Tale’ is the story of Michael Redshade and Jason Harvey, two childhood best friends living on the Wind River Indian Reservation whose lives are sent on opposing trajectories when an event changes their lives. As the story unfolds, the ideals of mythology and truth, of heritage and history unwind as the two former friends meet up after ten years apart.

As their paths diverge, we see how life has treated these former friends. As one schemes, the other drifts. Both are hurt by the wreck that ended their friendship. As their paths are forced to cross again, unexpected forces and events set them on their paths on a larger stage.”A Rez Tale” is the upending of myth, the exploration of love and friendship, and the examination of tribal politics which fuse the story and adds texture as the rez tale unfolds to its startling conclusion.

This is not the end for “A Rez Tale”, in March 2021, Redshade Productions will host the first “Book Discussion” of “A Rez Tale”. Stay tuned for more information.
