Editorial Reviews

Choice
"Erdrich is one of the best-known contemporary Native American writers, and her work is popular and used widely in classrooms. Beidler and Barton's excellent reference guide has all the information any student or teacher needs to follow the interconnection of Erdrich's novels. . . . With its sound scholarship and clear, concise writing style, this guide is a must for any library holding Erdrich's novels. It will be heavily used by undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty."
Studies in American Indian Literature
A conscientious reader who uses this handbook as it is intended--to facilitate the considerable intellectual work that Erdrich's texts demand--will find that it enhances the pleasure of traveling the road to full appreciation of Erdrich's achievement. Including this text with Erdrich's novels as required reading in literature classes will, without a doubt, lead students quickly to higher, more insightful levels of discussion and writing than they might otherwise have reached within the span of a single course.
From the Publisher

“Beidler and Barton’s excellent reference guide has all the information any student or teacher needs to follow the interconnections of Erdrich’s novels. . . . With its sound scholarship and clear, concise writing style, this guide is a must for any library holding Erdrich’s novels. It will be heavily used by undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty.”––Choice

“This is a valuable tool for undergraduate students and advanced scholars alike. . . . A conscientious reader who uses this handbook as it is intended––to facilitate the considerable intellectual work that Erdrich’s texts demand––will find that it enhances the pleasure of traveling the road to full appreciation of Erdrich’s achievement. Including this text with Erdrich’s novels as required reading in literature classes will, without a doubt, lead students quickly to higher, more insightful levels of discussion and writing than they might otherwise have reached within the span of a single course.”––Studies in American Indian Literature

“To help readers and scholars, Beidler and Barton have put together genealogies (actual family trees for all characters in Erdrich’s novels), a map showing the settings of her novels, chronologies, an extensive character dictionary that allows readers to look up each character and get an instant history of who the character is and what he/she has done in previous books, a shorter list of minor characters, a bibliography, and an index. What the authors don’t do is try to deconstruct the actual novels. They leave that to the readers as they should. . . . This guide is an ideal supplement for those teaching courses that include Erdrich’s works or a serious reader who wants to find out more about her books.”––Baton Rouge Advocate Magazine
