Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0767904419, Paperback)Originally published in 1975, Tim O'Brien's debut novel demonstrates the emotional complexity and enthralling narrative tension that later earned him the National Book Award. At its core is the relationship between two brothers: one who went to Vietnam and one who stayed at home. As the two brothers struggle against an unexpected blizzard in Minnesota's remote north woods, what they discover about themselves and each other will change both of them for ever.

O'Brien's dynamic first novel, a Vietnam vet and his brother vie for the same gal, a native of their dwindling Minnesota hometown. Culminating in a disastrous road trip which ends with the men skiing home through the wilderness, "Northern Lights" spawned themes that would become the author's hallmarks for future works.
