In her 14 novels, children's stories, and poetry collections, Louise Erdrich revisits the beloved and familiar Native American reservation of her North Dakota childhood, grounding mythic and magical in the detail of the everyday, “easily navigating the wavering line between a recognizable, psychological world and the more arcane world of legend and fable” (New York Times). Her novels include Love Medicine, winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award; The Last Report on the Miracles at Little No Horse; and The Plague of Doves, a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. In The Round House, a teenage boy seeks vengeance for a vicious attack against his Ojibwe mother.
