    I Also Recommend:

    Louise Erdrich is a superb word craftsman, and Antelope Wife will not disappoint the reader on that account.

    Readers who have little experience with life on the rez may not appreciate the wonder Louise Erdrich has created, but this novel is honest and up-front. What she writes about does happen, and the clarity of her story brings those events back to life with an immediacy that keeps pages turning. This doesn't mean you have to like the characters, or avoid chiding them and then celebrating them in their choices. It does mean that beside a really good story, Erdrich has given the reader an inside glimpse into life on the rez and the hold those ways of life have on the people who grow up there and leave to try and find better lives.

    Driven, a great novel

    As ussual, Erdich's characters try to spin and twist their way through or around inescapable hurdles. The author is bluntly honest in presenting humans as they are, difficult, lovable, troublesome, stong here and ever so weak there. Her stories are hillarious and yet often enough tradgic. Life is tough, but a good sense of humor can see us through. I love her detailed inclussion of multiple generations. The world view of Elders at the time of ealry treaties, and the changing views of the later ones who went to Indian Boarding schools, and their children and grandchildren. Great liturature like this and her other books help preserve and promote American Indigenous cultures within the context of the newer, larger society. Migwetch - Thank you Louise Erdrich.
