Based on an Athabascan Indian legend passed along for many generations from mothers to daughters of the upper Yukon River Valley in Alaska, this is the suspenseful, shocking, ultimately inspirational tale of two old women abandoned by their tribe during a brutal winter famine. Though these women have been known to complain more than contribute, they now must either survive on their own or die trying. In simple but vivid detail, Velma Wallis depicts a landscape and way of life that are at once merciless and starkly beautiful. In her old women, she has created two heroines of steely determination whose story of betrayal, friendship, community, and forgiveness "speaks straight to the heart with clarity, sweetness, and wisdom" (Ursula K. Le Guin).

This important and timely addition to the field provides context for issues that enter into Native American literary texts through allusions, references, and language use. The volume presents over forty essays by leading and emerging international scholars and analyses: regional, cultural, racial and sexual identities in Native American literature key historical moments from the earliest period of colonial contact to the present worldviews in relation to issues such as health, spirituality, animals, and physical environments traditions of cultural creation that are key to understanding the styles, allusions, and language of Native American Literature the impact of differing literary forms of Native American literature.

Μάιος του 1937. Ένας τριαντάρης περιμένει δίπλα στον ανελκυστήρα μιας πολυκατοικίας του Λένινγκραντ. Περιμένει όλη τη νύχτα ότι ανά πάσα στιγμή θα τον οδηγήσουν στο Αρχηγείο της Υπηρεσίας Κρατικής Ασφάλειας. Καμιά από τις διασημότητες που γνώρισε την περασμένη δεκαετία δεν μπορεί τώρα να του φανεί χρήσιμη. Και ελάχιστοι από όσους οδηγούνται στο Αρχηγείο επιστρέφουν. Αυτή είναι η αφετηρία του νέου αριστουργηματικού μυθιστορήματος του Μπαρνς, μια ιστορία για τη σύγκρουση ζωής και τέχνης, το θάρρος, τη δειλία, και τον πόνο του αναπόφευκτου συμβιβασμού. Το βιβλίο αναφέρεται στη ζωή, το έργο του Ντμίτρι Σοστακόβιτς καθώς και στη σύγκρουσή του με το σταλινικό καθεστώς.

Στην απομονωμένη από το κοντινό χωριό οικία Μπλάκγουντ ζουν μόνες η Κόνστανς και η μικρότερη αδελφή της η Μέρικατ μαζί με τον άρρωστο γέρο θείο τους Τζούλιαν. Η οικογένειά τους ξεκληρίστηκε από δηλητηρίαση με αρσενικό και για το φονικό κατηγορήθηκε η Κόνστανς. Παρόλο που το κορίτσι αθωώθηκε, ο κόσμος του χωριού δεν αφήνει σε ησυχία τις αδελφές Μπλάκγουντ. Η Μέρικατ, που προσπαθεί με φυλαχτά και ξόρκια να διατηρήσει αδιατάρακτο τον έτσι κι αλλιώς εύθραυστο τρόπο ζωής τους, θα κάνει ό,τι περνάει από το χέρι της για να προστατέψει την εναπομείνασα οικογένειά της όταν καταφθάνει ο ξάδερφος Τσαρλς εξαπολύοντας επίθεση φιλίας στην Κόνστανς, ενώ επιζητά απελπισμένα το περιεχόμενο του θησαυροφυλακίου τους.
