Rear cover notes: "Frederick Manfred is becoming known for intensity of coverage of his own land, which he calls Siouxland, similar to that of William Faulkner and his area of the South. In this tremendous life's work, Manfred has made MORNING RED his most ambitious novel to date, and the one dealing with his special insights into modern times. Here in a wonderfully double-plotted novel we find the whole gamut of life in the Upper Midlands country. MORNING RED teems with life and with great characters. Here are Jack Nagel, who feels that he is fated to live a doomed life and who commits a sex crime on a wild, stormy night; and Kurt Faber, who believes that he is fated to live a fruitful life and who for a time sells his soul to a politician to help a loved one. And here are other great characters, from the wronged woman who forgives, to the public defender with a sense of fitness of things; from the politician to the beer baron."
