Read in October, 2009

it might start a bit slow, but don't let that stop you from experiencing this brilliant work of historical fiction. the dual narrative structure effortlessly ties together the views of both the bohemian settlers as well as the native dakota indians during one of the bloodiest conflicts of the sioux uprising, a historical event commonly overlooked due to its taking place during the apex of the civil war. a lovely book. recommend to fans of louise erdrich (and vice versa).
