Louise Erdrich Tracks
If you like stories by Native Americans, this will be your meat. It is a running commentary by the tribal leader of the Chippewa in North Dakota and an angry daughter of the tribe throughout a ten year span. Fleur is a crucial character between the two. Nanapush, the tribal leader, is a man with history and ongoing life, all too human. This is not a quick read, definitely a character study. Even though I have problems relating to life of the Chippewa it was compelling. The author has written other books with some of the same characters, but this was a good starting place; and she definitely knows her subject. We are drawn in emotionally by her writing.
