Summary (From the publisher):

In The Summer He Didn't Die, Brown Dog, a hapless Michigan Indian is trying to parent his two stepchildren and take care of his family's health on meager resources: it helps a bit that his charms are irresistible to the new dentist in town.

Republican Wives is a wicked satire on the sexual neuroses of the right, the emptiness of a life lived for the status quo, and the irrational power of love that, when thwarted, can turn so easily into an urge to murder.

Tracking is a meditation on Harrison's fascination with place, telling his own familiar mythology through the places his life has seen and the intellectual loves he has known in a vivid stream of consciousness that transfigures how we look at our own surroundings.
