Summary (From the publisher):

From the publisher

Set in North Dakota at a time in this century when Indian tribes were struggling to keep what little remained of their lands, Tracks is a tale of passion and deep unrest. Over the course of ten crucial years, as tribal land and trust between people erode ceaselessly, men and women are pushed to the brink of their endurance--yet their pride and humor prohibit surrender. The reader will experience shock and pleasure in encountering a group of characters that are compelling and rich in their vigor, clarity, and indomitable vitality.

Blurbs:
  • "The author captures the passions, fears, myths, and doom of a living people, and she does so with an ease that leaves the reader breathless." The New Yorker
  • "Ms. Erdrich's novels, regional in the best sense, are 'about' the experience of Native Americans the way Toni Morrison's are about black people, William Faulkner and Eudora Welty's about the South, Philip Roth and Bernard Malamud's about the Jews. The specificity implies nothing provincial or small....Ms. Erdrich artfully sifts the miraculous through the mundane." New York Times Book Review
