SELECTED BY THE LITERARY GUILD

"Extraordinary...If you take up no other novel this year, or next, this one will suffice to hold, to disturb, to enlighten and to inspire you."

NEWSDAY

Early in this century, rivers of oil were found beneath Oklahoma land belonging to Indian people, and beautiful Grace Banket became the richest person in the Territory. But she was murdered by the greed of white men, and the Graycloud family, who cared for her daughter, began dying mysteriously. Letters sent to Washington, D.C. begging for help went unanswered, until at last a Native American government official, Stace Red Hawk, traveled west to investigate. What he found has been documented by history: rampant fraud, intimidation, and murder. But he also found something truly extraordinary--his deepest self and abiding love for his people, and their brave past.

Synopsis:

Letters sent to Washington, D.C., from Oklahoma Indians begging for help go unanswered--until Native American government official, Stace Red Hawk, travels west to investigate. "I wish everyone would read Mean Spirit".--Tony Hillerman. Winner of the 1990 Oklahoma Book Award for Fiction.

This novel is so complex, and so beautifully written, it reads like a movie playing in your head. Hogan's descriptive language paints an incredible picture, while her characters, some tragic, some hilarious, endear the story to your heart. A MUST READ!
