The Raod back to Sweetgrass
The Road Back to Sweet Grass
Set in northern Minnesota, this novel follows a trio of American Indian women from the 1970s to the present, observing their coming of age and the intersection of their lives as they navigate love, economic hardship, loss, and changing family dynamics on the fictional Mozhay Point reservation. Moving between past and present, the Native and the non-Native, history and myth, and tradition and survival, Linda LeGarde Grover connects the sense of place with the experience of Native women during the days of the federal termination policy and the struggle for tribal self-determination.
