 The Plague of Doves

by Louise Erdrich

"In The Plague of Doves, Erdrich returns to familiar territory, the stark plains of North Dakota, where the little town of Pluto sits beside rusting railroad tracks, slowly dying. What's killing it? Old grudges, lack of opportunity, long-haul trucking, modernity itself. Erdrich has created an often gorgeous, sometimes maddeningly opaque portrait of a community strangled by its own history." -- The New York Times Book Review
