Summary
In Pluto, North Dakota, a small town which borders a Native American reservation, multiple generations are haunted by a horrific past event: the murder of a farm family and the lynching of a group of innocent Native Americans in response. A variety of descendents tell the story: Evelina Harp, part White, part Ojibwe; her grandfather, Mooshum, lone survivor of the lynching; and Judge Coutts, town storyteller.
Critique
A multilayered, wrenching novel about the effect of hatred and injustice on families and communities through time. First in a trilogy.
