A story set as indigenous people are trying to keep their land and are struggling as they are caught between traditional beliefs and Christianity. All of Erdrich's books are interesting and thought-provoking.

The book precedes Love Medicine, so it adds a lot more fullness to the family saga. It also explains some puzzling family relationships. There are tears and laughter, as in all Erdrich's books: loss of the Indian ancestral land is especially offset by the fun story twists and laughter that old Nanapush brings in. Very intense juxtaposition of old indian beliefs and christianity. Great read.
