Geary Hobson named 2001 Fiction Writer of the Year by the Wordcraft Circle of Native Writers and Storytellers for his novel The Last of the Ofos!
A compassionate sketch, and deceptively simple quiet study, that manages to put a human face on the sadly logical outcome of a national history of genocide.
An Indian version of Little Big Man. . . . A less disciplined writer would have spun out the story, and the emotions it contains, to several times the length of The Last of the Ofos, but Hobson has realized his material fully in this short novel without compacting or scanting it.

Thomas Darko is an endearing and noble man in a novel by a skillful and wise writer.
Darko's tale is wonderful, and so convincing that I suspect many readers will forget it is fiction.
