–Heid Erdrich


Nin Creed is a feminist poet embarking upon a quixotic journey to recover the lost writings of her late mother, a scholar and linguist... Her quest evolves into a voyage of discovery into the enduring power of the written word in linking women to one another across the centuries.


Sweetgrass is a novel, written – much as a composer might create musical work – in the style of a Catholic mass. It was a finalist for the Minnesota Book Award.
