The round house / Louise Erdrich

Joe Coutts and his parents are a typical Ojibwe family living in North Dakota.  Joe’s  mother, Geraldine, is a tribal enrollment specialist and  his father, Bazil  is a tribal judge.  After Geraldine is brutally attacked by an unknown assailant, she falls into a deep depression.  Many factors are in play after Geraldine reveals she does not know where the attack took place.  For the Ojibwe community boundaries are varied, and the attack could have taken place on land not under the jurisdiction of the Ojibwe.  Joe enlists three of his best friends to research several community members and the scene of the crime to help find the attacker.  Written with care and compassion, this is a book not to be missed.     Karrie 3/17/2017
