Diane Wilson's beautifully crafted memoir begins with the traumatic 1862 event that creates fissures between Midwestern families, neighbors, and tribes, but this is mostly the story of a woman unburying her family's history and trying to begin the healing after hundreds of years of cultural genocide. Wilson's open, honest voice gives us a seat in her spirit car. I recommend you take the journey--it was very educational for me.
