This is the third book I’ve read by Erdrich which focuses on the Ojibwa Indians of the Turtle Mountain Reservation in north central North Dakota. I fell in love with Erdrich and this series with “Love Medicine” which I read twice, back-to-back, and have continued through the books “Four Souls” and Tracks.” The books are not written in chronological order but are about the same families, characters and situations as they developed over a period of about 100 years ( a guess) between 1890s or so to late 1980s? . The stories within the books are not told in a linear manner either so it all works together.
In The Last Report on the Miracles at Little No Horse, Erdrich explores the missionary work of Father Damien Modeste, first known as Sister Cecilia and Agnes DeWitt (yes, and not a spoiler as this is known very early in the book) who has made brief appearances in the other novels. >>>>MORE>>>>
