Read this for one of the reading challenges I'm doing: indigenous children's book. It explains the relationship between Native Americans and the government over the years, the injustices the community has faced, and how to help fight for them today. The storytelling style was just lacking here. It was literally written as a school presentation and felt too dry. More could be done to make this interesting for kids.

I finally visited my Nannys grave and discovered her headstone is wrong. She was more of a mom to me than my own. I personally believe that when we die we become part of the universe in a bigger way than stuck at our bodies resting place. (Which is why I hadn't been before.) She was 96 when she passed. The question is, what do I do about her stone? Do I risk upsetting the rest of the family by bringing it up? Why did no one else notice?

Dilara I am so sorry. This must be both upsetting and infuriating. 1mo
bookishbitch @Dilara Thank you. I am less angry and more perplexed. I do think she would want it changed. I need to look into options. 1mo

N. Scott Momaday is a national treasure. I get the feeling the guy never stops writing. In this collection, not only will you find sublime verse but plenty of couplets, or goofy quatrains, that most other poets would toss to the side. However, by the time the last line is writ, you get the feeling that Momaday has lived a hundred lifetimes, and I think that‘s sort of what he wants-now that knowledge of a hundred lifetimes is your knowledge.

This was an important book for me as a child. One of the few books with a “Native American“ storyline, and my childhood self understood the rarity.

While not from my ancestral tribes, this was a story from my ancestral world. I loved this story and would spend untold hours studying the illustrations.

Just reread this, and the story is still as profound to me today as it had been all those many years ago. I've fallen in love all over again. 👇

AnnCrystal The following is unrelated to this book, yet equally aligned with my childhood obsession of horses because of this book.

Was raised to know that there was a breed of horse “already here“ in the Americas. My mom told me this as a little girl, and I continued to believe even when I later read otherwise. 👇

AnnCrystal Now articles about this fact are being reported, about the survival of the original horse breed from before these lands were known as the Americas.

While I love all breeds of horses 🐴💝🐎, this is just absolutely fantastically epic!

Like @Centique said, this is not my favorite of the Love Medicine novels. Many characters are difficult to love, and there is less humor and more relentless depression. But I did love Fleur‘s final act. And I think I know what happened with Lipsha, but would love to discuss with anyone else who has read this. Number 10 for #24in2024 @Jas16

Jas16 Still haven‘t read this one. I need to. 3mo
Centique Im glad someone else has read this book! Whats your theory about Lipsha? 3mo
Lcsmcat @Centique I‘m wondering if she meant us to think he got away with it by being perceived as his father‘s hostage. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 3mo
Centique @Lcsmcat oh i like that theory. I was wondering if theyd all died because he saw his mothers ghost again - but i much prefer thinking he got out of there 3mo
