Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Inspired by the lore of her Sioux heritage, this critically-acclaimed novel from Susan Power weaves the stories of the old and the young, of broken families, romantic rivals, men and women in love and at war. Revealing the harsh price of unfulfilled longings and the healing power of mystery and hope, The Grass Dancer takes readers on a journey through past and present-in a tale as resonant and haunting as an ancestor's memory, and as promising as a child's dream.

Synopsis:

From the lore of her people, the Sioux, Susan Power has forged a consummate work of the imagination. Set on a North Dakota reservation, "The Grass Dancer" creates a living mythology, spinning folk motifs into the fabric of reality, revealing how the actions of our ancestors can affect our contemporary lives.
