Read full description of the books:
Nella riserva di indiani ojibwe, resa familiare dai precedenti romanzi di Louise Erdrich, serpeggiano i timori per l'approssimarsi della fine del secondo millennio. Le famiglie di due sorelle si preparano ai festeggiamenti natalizi. Tutto sembra andare normalmente - a parte le paure ossessive del bug che tormentano Peter, uno dei due capifamiglia -, quando una tragedia ben più reale della prevista fine del mondo si abbatte sulla riserva: un giorno, andando a caccia di un cervo di cui ha seguito le tracce per tutta l'estate, il cognato di Peter, Landreaux, vede finalmente sbucare da un bosco la sua preda, spara, ma quando si avvicina scopre di aver ucciso non l'animale ma Dusty, suo nipote. Con questo inizio fulminante Louise Erdrich entra a spron battuto in un vasto labirinto. L'uccisione del bambino getta nella disperazione i genitori e pone l'altra coppia davanti a un dilemma: secondo le antiche tradizioni indiane, chi aveva privato una famiglia di un figlio poteva riparare affidandole un ragazzo equivalente. Chi meglio del figlio dell'assassino potrà alleviare in qualche modo il dolore di Peter e Nola? Detto, fatto: LaRose viene "ceduto" agli zii, nella speranza che questo valga anche a placare ogni sentimento di vendetta che covi nel loro animo.

From a book description:
Louise Erdrich is one of the most gifted, prolific, and challenging of contemporary Native American novelists. Born in 1954 in Little Falls, Minnesota, she grew up mostly in Wahpeton, North Dakota, where her parents taught at Bureau of Indian Affairs schools. Her fiction reflects aspects of her mixed heritage: German through her father, and French and Ojibwa through her mother. She worked at various jobs, such as hoeing sugar beets, farm work, waitressing, short order cooking, lifeguarding, and construction work, before becoming a writer. She attended the Johns Hopkins creative writing program and received fellowships at the McDowell Colony and the Yaddo Colony. After she was named writer-in-residence at Dartmouth, she married professor Michael Dorris and raised several children, some of them adopted. She and Michael became a picture-book husband-and-wife writing team, though they wrote only one truly collaborative novel, The Crown of Columbus (1991).
The Antelope Wife was published in 1998, not long after her separation from Michael and his subsequent suicide. Some reviewers believed they saw in The Antelope Wife the anguish Erdrich must have felt as her marriage crumbled, but she has stated that she is unconscious of having mirrored any real-life events.
She is the author of four previous bestselling andaward-winning novels, including Love Medicine; The Beet Queen; Tracks; and The Bingo Palace. She also has written two collections of poetry, Jacklight, and Baptism of Desire. Her fiction has been honored by the National Book Critics Circle (1984) and The Los Angeles Times (1985), and has been translated into fourteen languages.
Several of her short stories have been selected for O. Henry awards and for inclusion in the annual Best American Short Story anthologies. The Blue Jay's Dance, a memoir of motherhood, was her first nonfiction work, and her children's book, Grandmother's Pigeon, has been published by Hyperion Press. She lives in Minnesota with her children, who help her run a small independent bookstore called The Birchbark.
