A wonderful novel of a portraying five generations of a pioneering family in Nebraska. This is the story of Dalva and her search for a son given up for adoption intertwined with stories of the Sioux ancestors. Wonderful.

I found this book haunting and ringing absolutely true. A tangled story of life on the Plains both at the time of the "Indian Wars" and now. The story is tangled in the same way that our history is tangled. The followup to Dalva, "The Road Home" completes the story. I fond it interesting, but not as satisfying.
