Overview

Spirit Car is an exquisite counterpoint of memoir and carefully researched fiction, an amazing narrative that ties modern Minnesota to the single most painful event in its history. This compelling work shows the strength, love, and humor of a family of survivors-and the healing power of family stories.

    Take a Ride in Spirit Car

    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.
