THE BOOKS

A sweeping history--and counter-narrative--of Native American life from the Wounded Knee massacre to the present.

A haunting and unforgettable novel about love, loss, race, and desire in World War II–era America.

With authoritative research and reportage, Treuer illuminates misunderstood contemporary issues like sovereignty, treaty rights, and natural-resource conservation

Moving back and forth between the scholar and his text, from a lone man in a labyrinthine archive to a pair of beautiful young Indian lovers in an unspoiled and snowy woodland, David Treuer weaves together two love stories. 

An elegy to the American dream, and to the sometimes tragic experience of the Native Americans who helped to build it, The Hiawatha is a powerful novel that confirms David Treuer's status as a young writer of rare talent.

Mining the layers of family secrets that have built up over three generations on a reservation town called Poverty, members of the tiny community tell their own stories, leading finally to the heart of the mystery that surrounds an eight-year-old boy named Little.
