This is the first book in Louise Erdrich's Native American series and this copy is a new and expanded edition. I loved this book, the characters are powerfully written, their stories are based on a strong multigenerational culture. If this is your first opportunity to read Louise Erdrich you will finish with a desire to read other books in this series.
beautifully written, very moving piece on Native American life
Remarkable first novel by one of my favorite authors who has gone on to even greater greatness. This a great, poetic read, sensitively written, with characters you won't soon forget because they are Real.
This is a wonderful story of two Native American families and the way their stories intertwine and overlap over several generations. It's hard to put down. I highly recommend it.
I love Erdrich's stories. They aren't the most cheerful tales, and this one surely isn't. This is the first of her novels of the Objiwe, all interwoven stories. I read this so many years ago, then again and again.
