Set on and around a North Dakota reservation, 'Love Medicine' tells
of the intertwined fates of two families, the Lamartines and the Kashpaws.

sequence of narratives which pulse with the sheer energy and drama of life.

has now substantially revised and expanded the novel for this edition,
to complement its companion novels, 'The Beet Queen, Tracks' and 'The Bingo
