Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Anna Fields

Literary Fiction • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1998

In the late 1800' s in a cruel raid on a village an American soldier kills a grandmother but rescues her grandchild, who is carried on the back of a frightened dog. This story of the grandmother and baby weaves through the lives of their descendents, Roy and Shawano families. With her deep, commanding voice, reader Anna Fields creates a patterned regularity that preserves both the dry humor of Erdrich's Native American stories and the rich poetry of her speech. The evenness of Fields's tempo helps the reader connect the stories that weave in and out of generations. It produces a compelling magical realism as the two families carry their complex Ojibway past into contemporary life in modern Minneapolis. P.E.F.
