Edition: First UK printing.
London: Andre Deutsch, (1984.) dj. Hardcover first edition - Native American author's first novel (second book, following a book of poetry) and winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award. A 'story of the intertwined fates of the Kashpaws and the Lamartines on and around a North Dakota reservation from 1934 to 1984.' This went quickly into later printings. Cover praise from Anne Tyler, Kay Boyle and Peter Matthiessen (who called this a 'remarkable first novel . .. conveying unflinchingly the funkiness, humor and unspoken sadness of the Indian reservations, and a people exiled to a no-man's land between two worlds.') 272 pp. ISBN: 0-233-977414.
Condition: Fine in fine dust jacket.
