Description

"A fiercely imagined tale of love and loss, a story that manages to transform tragedy into comic redemption, sorrow into heroic survival."
—New York Times

"[A] beguiling family saga....A captivating jigsaw puzzle of longing and loss whose pieces form an unforgettable image of contemporary Native American life."
—People

A New York Times bestselling author, a Pulitzer Prize finalist, and winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award, Louise Erdrich is an acclaimed chronicler of life and love, mystery and magic within the Native American community. A hauntingly beautiful story of a mysterious woman who enters the lives of two families and changes them forever, Erdrich's classic novel, The Antelope Wife, has enthralled readers for more than a decade with its powerful themes of fate and ancestry, tragedy and salvation. Now the acclaimed author of Shadow Tag and The Plague of Doves has radically revised this already masterful work, adding a new richness to the characters and story while bringing its major themes into sharper focus, as it ingeniously illuminates the effect of history on families and cultures, Ojibwe and white.

shortDescription
"Family stories repeat themselves in patterns and waves, generation to generation, across blood and time. Once the pattern is set, we go on replicating it." - Louise Erdrich, The Antelope Wife

Rooted in the landscape of city life, yet continually influenced by the power of the Ojibwa family, the intricacies of Ojibwa language and religious belief, The Antelope Wife reflects the irrevocable patterns set in motion by certain fateful acts. It is a story of connections in which history, lust, contemporary urban Native American life, hand-me-down names, and legends, as well as sacred myth, combine.

Set in Minneapolis, originally an important trading center and hunting ground, and still a magnet for many native people from nearby reservations, the story goes back in time. It begins with a soldier, who deserts the cavalry during a cruel raid on an Ojibwa village to chase a dog bearing on its back a baby on a cradle board strung with breathtaking blue beads....
