Annotation:In this book, Alexie offers nine poignant and emotionally resonant new stories about Native Americans who, like all Americans, find themselves at personal and cultural crossroads, faced with heartrending, tragic, sometimes wondrous moments of being that test their loyalties, their capacities, and their notions of who they are and who they love.
Annotation:The elegant short fictions gathered here about the love of science and the science of love are often set against the backdrop of the nineteenth century. Barrett writes beautifully about the natural world.
