Award-winning novelist, Louise Erdrich, returns to characters from previous works, such as Tracks (1988),for this narrative that goes back and forth in the life of Father Damien Modeste, priest to the Anishinaabe on the reservation of Little No Horse. Modeste, nearing the end of his life, dreads the discovery of his physical identity—for he is a woman who has lived as a man. As he relates his life story, readers will be enthralled by his experiences as a young woman, and the pestilence, tribal hatreds, and sorrows passed from generation to generation of Anishinaabe. In this compelling and timely novel, Erdrich captures the passion of a woman who felt compelled by her beliefs to serve her people as a priest.
