In a North Dakota reservation hunting accident one families father accidently kills the son of his neighbors family , and by invoking an ancient tribal law turn over their own 5 year old son Larose to be raised by them as retribution. Parts of this book are beautifully written in prose and with insightful knowledge of ancient Indian traditions which Louise Erdrich is famous for writing about. There are quite a few characters in here and an array of subjects from 9/11 politics , Father Travis a Tae Kwon Do teaching , AA leading minister whos in love with one of the grieving mothers, high school volleyball games that turn into a near rumble.The very emotional parts where two families are trying to share a son and grieve the loss of a child and of causing others grief while very heartfelt somehow for me got all mixed up with other subplots mentioned above along with those of drug use , an old boarding school friend whos out for revenge,and another subplot of 6 generations of ancestors with the name Larose is also stirred into the pot. I know the author was trying to convey the traditional Indian culture along with the modern here , and many of my GR friends really enjoyed this book. But for my taste there were just too many odd diversions from what began as a very good central theme. 3 stars

I love the way Louise Erdrich weaves old-time Indian folklore into her stories. This was fantastic.

The death of a child is probably the worst thing a family can go through. In this case the childs death dramatically alters 2 families and their relationships. I really enjoyed the side story about the sisters and how they coped at a reservation high school. I especially liked Maggie.

Erdrichs writing is spectacular in this. Her descriptions of the land and also the characters was great. If you havent read this one, I highly recommend it.

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeoning of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years,
Finds, and shall find me, unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

A terrible mistake. @The fell clutch of [email protected] Landreaux shoots young Dusty, the son of his friends Peter and Nola, instead of what he thought was a deer. In the Ojibwe tradition, which seems unfathomable to me, Landreaux and his wife Emmaline give Dustys parents their son, LaRose. The grief, enormous, shatters like stained glass and the shards splice everyone in different ways.

Getting blown up happened in an instant; getting put together took the rest of your life.

The book takes us through this grief, and in doing this, tells us the stories of the families affected by Dustys death, and how LaRose becomes a healing force. We learn about the five generations of LaRoses. We learn about Romeo, a friend of Landreaux from childhood, who has grown twisted with addiction and bitterness, and who is obsessed with revenge. And we glimpse the gorgeous magical spirituality of the Native Americans, those who can rise out of their bodies.

This is my first time reading Erdrich (aside from her extremely powerful short story The Shawl). Her writing is excellent; unsentimental, yet personal. She mixes the ancient with modern so seamlessly.

I found the book a little too long, though. I had to wade through the middle with determination because I knew it would be worth it in the end. And it was.

Sometimes – because of your family, your background, your town, your status, your temperament, your father, your mother - there’s no way to win in life. Sometimes too much has been taken from you. And now this empty, pointless life. Your wife stops loving you. The only friend you’ve ever had turns his back on you. Your little brother dies. This hopelessness and heaviness was captured so well by Erdrich. I don’t think I’ve ever before read such an accurate portrayal of how deeply unsafe and wide-open the world feels when you’re a child of a suicidal parent. So much anxiety, so much numbing of minds. What a sad, painful book.

It is a rare book that can create unbearable tension right from the very first pages. But from the start, it’s obvious that Louise Erdrich is in full charge of her narrative. “When the buck popped away he realized he’d hit something else—there had been a blur the moment he squeezed the trigger. Only when he walked forward to investigate and looked down did he understand that he has killed his neighbor’s son.”

Landreaux Iron, an Ojibwe man, a loving husband and father, and a recovering alcoholic, kills his neighbor’s son while stalking a buck. To atone for his actions, he and his life Emmeline agree to share their youngest son LaRose – a 5-year-old boy who is the exact age of the dead son of their neighbors – with the bereaved parents.

LaRose is not the first person in the Iron family who has borne that name, a name that is synonymous with mirage. There have been five LaRoses in all, and each of them is special in his or her own way. Erdrich writes, “That name would protect him from the unknown, from what had been let loose with the accident. Sometimes energy of this nature, chaos, ill luck, goes out of the world and begets and begets.”

LaRose is called upon to function as the bridge between families, a bridge that heals. Bridges abound in LaRose: the bridge between the traditional and the contemporary, between loss and redemption, between youth and adulthood, between the real world and the mythic one. There are also bridges among the generations, all of whom share hardship and embody a sense of survival.

Over the course of this amazing novel, we discover the first LaRose, sold by her mother, misused by her purchaser, and almost annihilated by her Indian body school. She links to the other LaRoses, evolving to the young boy who is the latest link to the tragedies that befall the family. LaRose in his own way is a healer, a Savior. Louise Erdrich has one again created something very special.
