Clean, tight, unmarked; number on bottom edge; otherwise as new; Nikolai is a Russian Doukhobor who rises as a champion of his people in the face of their persecution, and takes part in the negotiation of their 1898 immigration to freedom in the new land - Canada. But something unexpected happens, both to the Doukhobors in their new home, and to Nikolai, as he finds himself forced to choose between the vision of his religious leader and the personal goals of achieving selfhood. Nelson simply and powerfully weaves these personal and community dilemmas into a play of precise action and dialogue. The story may be historical, but the struggle is universal, and there are no easy answers, in Spirit Wrestler, or in real life.
