Louise Erdrich

Louise Erdrich, a member of the Turtle Mountain Band of Ojibwe, compassionately chronicles the intertwined histories of Native American and mixed-blood families of her native North Dakota.

She is the author of ten novels including, The Last Report on the Miracles at Little No Horse, and Love Medicine, as well as poetry, children’s books, and a memoir of early motherhood, The Blue Jay’s Dance.

Her latest book, Four Souls, tells the story of Fleur Pillager, who takes her mother’s secret name, Four Souls, for strength and walks from her Ojibwe reservation to the cities of Minneapolis and Saint Paul seeking restitution from and revenge on the lumber baron who stripped her reservation.

Erdrich lives with her four daughters in Minnesota and owns Birchbank Books, a small independent bookstore.
