The Book of the Dun Cow - Walter Wangerin Jr. Moving, deep, difficult at times but keeps you turning the pages. Wangerin doesn't shy away from depicting a realistic battle between good and evil. This story is set in a barnyard and draws on the traditions of Aesop, Animal Farm, Watership Down, the bible, and the lesser-known Duncton Wood books. Beautifully written. Will keep you thinking for days afterward.
