New from Louise Erdrich

Antelop Woman

Antelope Woman

This updated edition of Louise’s 1998 novel The Antelope Wife features fascinating new content, a new title, beautiful cover art by Aza Erdrich, and a new foreword by the author. "This is a rewrite. I kept a few chapters, but most of this book is new. I gave my Antelope Woman her wise wildness, her unowned heart. That is why she became an Antelope Woman, not an Antelope Wife." - Louise Erdrich
Signed by the author.


Makoons (Birchbark House)

Book 5 in the beloved Birchbark House series. Named for the Ojibwe word for little bear, Makoons and his twin, Chickadee, have traveled with their family to the Great Plains of Dakota Territory. There they must learn to become buffalo hunters and once again help their people make a home in a new land. But Makoons has had a vision that foretells great challenges—challenges that his family may not be able to overcome. Signed by Louise.


LaRose: A Novel

In this literary masterwork, Louise wields her breathtaking narrative magic in an emotionally haunting contemporary tale of a tragic accident, a demand for justice, and a profound act of atonement with ancient roots in indigenous culture. Signed by Louise.
