Re-reading this book after getting on a bit of a Louise Erdrich kick this summer. Chronologically takes place right after Tracks, so I picked it up after re-reading Tracks this fall. Only made it as far as Chapter 1 before getting pulled into other things... now reading it in earnest.

I love the character development in this series by Louise Erdrich and Four Souls delivers more of the same. Interesting to read of Fleur's flaws and weaknesses right after reading Tracks, which focuses on her power. Even though the book is about her, is really isn't about her much at all; more about the stories of the people associated with her. I love the transformation of Polly Elizabeth. Although I liked Tracks better overall, I think Four Souls is more accessible. Less myth and dream sequence, less sorrow and tragedy.

Now I'm trying to decide which book to re-read next... Chronologically would it be Last Report on the Miracle at Little No Horse or Love Medicine?
