When Klaus Shawano abducts Sweetheart Calico and
carries her far from her native Montana plains to his Minneapolis home,
he cannot begin to imagine what the eventual consequences of his rash
act will be. Shawano's mysterious Antelope Woman has stolen his
heart—and soon proves to be a bewitching agent of chaos whose effect on
others is disturbing and irresistible, as she alters the shape of things
around her and the shape of things to come.
In this remarkable
revised edition of her acclaimed novel, Louise Erdrich weaves an
unforgettable tapestry of ancestry, fate, harrowing tragedy, and
redemption that seems at once modern and eternal.
