Little Hawk and the Lone Wolf : A Memoir
In this rare first-person narrative of a Menominee Indian’s coming of age, Raymond Kaquatosh shares a story that is wise and irreverent, often funny, and in the end, deeply moving.
A prequel to the classic Walking the Rez Road, Northrup returns to the story of Luke Warmwater. "The stories stand the test of time; blackly humorous, plainspoken, and earthy."
