Author Info
Louise Erdrich
Erdrich's mother was Chippewa, her father German, and she was raised in North Dakota near the Chippewa reservation where her grandparents lived--a setting for much of her work. She attended Dartmouth, where she met the writer Michael Dorris, whom she married in 1981, and from whom she separated shortly before his suicide in 1997. Erdrich and Dorris collaborated on several of their fiction works. In her novels and short stories, Erdrich writes about her Native-American heritage, often transplanting characters from one book to another. Her dominant theme is the struggle to retain traditional Native-American values in the face of poverty, racism, and the pervasiveness of white culture.
Praise
"[A] beautifully constructed sequel."
"In these first books, has Louise Erdrich matched Laura Ingalls Wilder's achievement ? I think so. She has created a world, fictional but real: absorbing, funny, serious and convincingly human."
"Like its prequel, this meticulously researched novel offers an even balance of joyful and sorrowful moments while conveying a perspective of America's past that is rarely found in history books."
From the Publisher
Annotation Deeply attached to her island home, nine-year-old Omakayas spends her days helping her mother and grandmother care for the family, playing with cousins, and evading her annoying little brother, Pinch. The year is 1850, and change comes in two forms: the arrival of destitute relatives and disturbing news that the white men may force the Ojibwe from their land. Surrounded by everyone she loves, Omakayas can't imagine her life differently and begins to understand how precious her people and home are. This sequel to THE BIRCHBARK HOUSE comes with a glossary of Ojibwe words. Louise Erdrich, the author, is a member of the Turtle Mountain Band of Ojibwa, and this story is partially based on her own family history.
