We often think of Native Americans in connection to the land whether ancestral or on reservations. At a time when more and more people are living in cities, there isn‘t much in the canon to reflect this. Tommy Orange is here to change that!
I really enjoyed reading this memoir. If you like Wild Swans by Jung Chang, this is slightly more contemporary. While Jung‘s family was higher class, Xiaolu grew up a peasant. Both found their own way out of China. Xiaolu‘s writing is stunning and her story is remarkable. The audiobook is A+.
