Erdrich, Louise

The Last Report on the Miracles at Little No Horse

€ 17.95

For more than half a century, Father Damien Modeste has served his beloved people, the Ojibwe, on the remote reservation of Little No Horse. Now, nearing the end of his life, he dreads the discovery of his physical identity, for he is a woman who has lived as a man. He imagines the undoing of all he has accomplished: unions sundered, baptisms nullified, those who confessed to him once again unforgiven. To complicate his fears, his quiet life changes when a troubled colleague comes to the reservation to investigate the life of the perplexing, difficult, possibly false saint Sister Leopolda.Father Damien's story encompasses his life as a woman, her passions, and the pestilence, tribal hatreds, and sorrows passed from generation to generation of Ojibwe. In a masterwork that both deepens and enlarges the world of her previous novels set on the same reservation, Louise Erdrich captures the essence of a time and the spirit of a woman who felt compelled by her beliefs to serve her people as a priest.
