When I was taking a short story class in California, Louise Erdrich was one of the recommended authors, along with Tim O'Brien and Raymond Carver. So you know she's good.

Oh, what a story. A former nun lives her adult life as a priest on a reservation for more than fifty years. This story enriches the canvas of reservations on which Erdrich paints her stories in words. The characters and the deep emotions shown by the characters are worthy citizens of Erdrich’s world.

I tried to read this at the beginning of the summer without much success. I revisited it later this summer/early fall & found it was perfect!! I really enjoyed learning the characters, the towns and traditions, missteps and human elements in this book. Wonderful storytelling and lovely read! I found myself surrounded in warm blankets, warm drinks, and delightful falling leaves as I journeyed through Little No Horse. A beautiful star I am glad to have seen!!

It’s impossible to find fault with Erdrich’s lyrical writing, or the poetic tension she creates between Ojibwe mysticism and Catholicism, or the abundant symbolism with which she infuses the book. And certain events in the story are unforgettable (oh, the vision created when Nanapush is snagged to his boat seat and dragged by a frightened moose!). The density of Erdrich’s prose was, at times, distracting, however. In those moments, I felt that I should be <i>studying</i> the book, rather than reading it for pleasure.

An excellent read, this book covers historical ground, questions and observations on culture and identity and weaves together complex stories.

This is an amazing book, spanning many years and cultures. It’s a complicated story in some ways, but worth reading.
