Stephen Graham Jones is a Blackfeet Native American author of experimental fiction, horror fiction, crime fiction, and science fiction. Maria Wolf is a Native American graphic artist and designer.

Memorial Ride is a high-speed, ragtag chase across the American Southwest. Cooper
Town, an American Indian soldier, has returned from the Middle East to attend his
father’s funeral, make some quick cash off his father’s old Harley, and spend a whirlwind
weekend with his girlfriend, Sheri Mun. However, when Coop runs afoul of the violent
John Wayne gang, he and Sheri Mun have no choice but to twist the throttle back on that storied chopper and make tracks. In the spirit of Billy Jean, but fully aware of Billy Jack, Coop and Sheri Mun’s race to survive is full speed ahead with many potholes in their path. Turning the traditional Western on its head, Memorial Ride recasts the genre as a road movie. It’s raucous, it’s violent, and, scarily enough, it might even be true. In short, this graphic novel delivers the storytelling prowess of Stephen Graham Jones through Maria Wolf’s artwork, and the result is a ride you’ll want to take again and again.

 Co-published by the University of New Mexico Press and Red Planet Books & Comics which feature Native American graphic novels and illustrated histories by important and emerging Native writers and artists.
