Description du produit

From Publishers Weekly

In her luminous, quietly compelling second novel, Hogan, a Chickasaw poet and writer (whose first novel, Mean Spirit, was a finalist for the Pulitzer), ties a young woman's coming-of-age to the fate of the natural world she comes to inhabit. Angela Jensen, a troubled 17-year-old, narrates the tale of her return to Adam's Rib, an island town in the boundary waters between Minnesota and Canada. Tucked into a pristine landscape of countless islands, wild animals and desperately harsh winters, it's her Native American family's homeland. As a child, Angela was abandoned by her mother, Hannah Wing, but not before Hannah had permanently scarred half of Angela's face; earlier, Hannah herself had been separated from her family and unspeakably abused. In Adam's Rib, Angela is reunited with her great-grandmother, Agnes Iron, and Agnes's mother, Dora-Rouge; she also spends a winter with Bush, a solitary woman who briefly raised her and, years earlier and also briefly, raised Hannah. Just as Angela discovers through her family's elemental way of life her own blood ties to the land, the threat of a huge hydroelectric dam project ruins her idyll. The four women?Angela, Agnes, Dora-Rouge and Bush?embark on a dangerous journey far northward to visit the homeland, where Hannah Wing is known to live. Hogan's finely tuned descriptions of the land and its spiritual significance draw a parallel between the ravages suffered by the environment and those suffered by Angela's mother. And, as the land is transformed, so are the lives of the characters, often in deeply resonant ways.

From Library Journal

Chickasaw novelist and poet Hogan has numerous books to her credit, including the award-winning Mean Spirit (LJ 11/1/90). She has certainly influenced newcomers W.S. Penn (The Absence of Angels, LJ 1/94) and Betty Louise Bell (Faces in the Moon, LJ 3/1/94). Rich in spirituality, language, landscape, emotion, myth, and healing, this new work unfolds to reveal four Native American women intent on saving sacred areas from the construction of a hydroelectric dam. The central quest belongs to Angela, a young woman seeking to explain her mother's history of child abuse. While answers elude her, like precious medicinal plants quickly inundated, Angela still discovers herself and her heritage. Sadly, the most dangerous creatures the women encounter in the remote lands near Canada are other humans. Recommended for most collections.?Faye A. Chadwell, Univ. of Oregon, Eugene

This lyrical, haunting and ultimately uplifting novel is very hard to describe. I've tried several times to tell others about it and know I've failed to convey the magic that lies between the words. It's a story about five generations of women, it's a story about the building of dams north of Minnesota and the devastation to the animals and people, it's a story about the many facets of the human spirit, both good and evil. But the gem of the tale lies in the connection to Mother Earth. Read the book. Any synopsis doesn't do it justice. It must be experienced firsthand.

Amazing insight to the struggles of Native American communities. This book paints an intimate picture of American imperialism and the dangers of careless colonization. A wonderful book written with a beautiful voice.

It's not often I have a difficult time with a novel, perhaps because I typically pick entertaining ones that require little expenditure of my tired brain power, but Solar Storms challenged me. Linda Hogan wrote a beautiful story about Native Americans, their relationships with the land and each other, and the evils of greed. It is filled with lyrical descriptions, and is insightful and understanding. The density of the prose and pace of the plot make it a bit slow going - it's not a book you're going to speed read, but it's well worth the effort.

I found this book to be an insight to the enormous trials that have been faced by the First Nation people of northern Manitoba. What we have done and continue to do to these people has no excuse. More of the same is continuing to this day in the destruction of their lives and the environment. I know some of these people and my daughter has done a documentary movie "Green Green Water" [..] on aspects of this tragedy. Little is known or understood of this situation as it is government backed and they spend huge amounts of money to keep it quiet. The bottom line for Manitoba is electricity sold to the USA.

It is a well written but dark book as the situations are dark. Although it is a novel, to my experience with these people and this situation it rings true.

This book dances with poetry, the pain of what has been taken from our natural selves and our natural world, and the hope and resilience of the human spirit.
