In the world of interconnected novels by Louise Erdrich, Four Souls is most closely linked to Tracks. All these works continue and elaborate on the intricate story of life on a reservation peopled by saints and false saints, heroes and sinners, clever fools and tenacious women. Louise Erdrich reminds us of the deep spirituality and the ordinary humanity of this world, and these works are as beautiful and lyrical as anything she has written.

Set in North Dakota, Tracks is a tale of passion and deep unrest. Over the course of 10 crucial years, as tribal land and trust between people erode ceaselessly, men and women are pushed to the brink of their endurance, yet their pride and humor prohibit surrender. The listener will experience shock and pleasure in encountering characters that are compelling and rich in their vigor, clarity, and indomitable vitality.

Four Souls
A strange and compelling woman decides to leave home, and the story begins. Fleur Pillager takes her mother's name, Four Souls, for strength and walks from her Ojibwe reservation to the cities of Minneapolis and Saint Paul. She is seeking restitution from and revenge on the lumber baron who has stripped her reservation. But revenge is never simple, and she quickly finds her intentions complicated by her own dangerous compassion for the man who wronged her.

    " Sometimes I love Erdrich--Master Butcher Singing Club and The Last Report of Miracles ranking not far behind were great books, but sometimes she tells a simple story. It is enjoyable often informative of another culture and or time and a good read, but not a great book. Four Souls and its follow up, The Painted Drum, are good stories, but not great books. "

    " My second favorite among Erdrich's books. Fleur Pillager, terrifying and wonderful. "

    " About Chippewa Indian culture. A woman wants revenge for her stolen trees. And a "chief" commentary who does foolish things but his wife loves him anyway. Not my favorite book but interesting. "

    " Another masterful work by Louise Erdrich, focusing on the enigmatic Fleur Pillager and her trickster stepfather, Nanapush. The characters are richly drawn and three dimensional. Funniest chapter--"Red Jacket Beans." The novel also includes a moving baptism/ritual cleansing scene. "
