The Night Watchman
Literarischer Roman von Louise Erdrich
It is 1953. Thomas Wazhushk is the night watchman at the first factory to open near the Turtle Mountain Reservation in rural North Dakota. He is also a prominent Chippewa Council member, trying to understand a new bill that is soon to be put before Congress. The US Government calls it an ‚emancipation‘ bill; but it isn’t about freedom – it threatens the rights of Native Americans to their land, their very identity. How can he fight this betrayal?

Sie lebt in Minneapolis. „What is most beautiful about the book is how this family feeling manifests itself in the way the people of The Night Watchman see the world, their fierce attachment to each other, however close or distant, living or dead.“ (Minneapolis Star-Tribune) (6.008 Rezensionen / 4,4 Sterne), 464 Seiten noch günstig?
