About this product
- DescriptionLouise Erdrichâ²s mesmerizing novel, her first in almost three years, centers on a compelling mystery. The unsolved murder of a farm family haunts the small, white, off-reservation town of Pluto, North Dakota. The vengeance exacted for this crime and the subsequent distortions of truth transform the lives of Ojibwe living on the nearby reservation and shape the passions of both communities for the next generation. The descendants of Ojibwe and white intermarry, their lives intertwine; only the youngest generation, of mixed blood, remains unaware of the role the past continues to play in their lives. Evelina Harp is a witty, ambitious young girl, part Ojibwe, part white, who is prone to falling hopelessly in love. Mooshum, Evelinaâ²s grandfather, is a seductive storyteller, a repository of family and tribal history with an all-too-intimate knowledge of the violent past. Nobody understands the weight of historical injustice better than Judge Antone Bazil Coutts, a thoughtful mixed blood who witnesses the lives of those who appear before him, and whose own love life reflects the entire history of the territory. In distinct and winning voices, Erdrichâ²s narrators unravel the stories of different generations and families in this corner of North Dakota. Bound by love, torn by history, the two communitiesâ² collective stories finally come together in a wrenching truth revealed in the novelâ²s final pages. THE PLAGUE OF DOVES is one of the major achievements of Louise Erdrichâ²s considerable oeuvre, a quintessentially American story and the most complex and original of her books.
