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.
From the Publisher
Annotation Erdrich writes about a collection of diverse Native American women in these interrelated tales that begin in the early 20th century. Fleur is a Chippewa trying to raise her difficult daughter, while she struggles to maintain her identity and keep alive her people's traditions in a white world that is increasingly alien.
Editors Note "Even readers won over by Louise Erdrich's two earlier works may be surprised by her third novel. Tracks is a stunning and powerful book: it is by far the most impressive installment."--Boston Phoenix
Editors Note 2 Set in the early 1900s, Tracks follows a North Dakota Indian tribe and its struggle to keep their land out of the hands of an encroaching white society.
Editors Note 3 Set in North Dakota at a time in this century when Indian tribes were struggling to keep what little remained of their lands, Tracks is a tale of passion and deep unrest. Over the course of ten crucial years, as tribal land and trust between people erode ceaselessly, men and women are pushed to the brink of their endurance--yet their pride and humor prohibit surrender.
