A “brilliant chronicler of the American Indian experience” (Reader’s Digest), Louise Erdrich revisits the beloved and familiar Ojibwe reservation of her North Dakota childhood—illuminating the mythical and magical in the detail of the everyday—in her more than two dozen novels, children’s stories, nonfiction works, and poetry collections. 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. Her 2012 novel The Round House won the National Book Award. Erdrich’s latest novel tells a tale of natural justice and the reparation of the human heart.
