When we are young, the words are scattered all around us. As they are assembled by experience, so also are we, sentence by sentence, until the story takes shape. 

Happy 60th birthday, Louise Erdrich! A member of the Chippewa tribe, the National Book Award winning novelist is a significant figure in the Native American Renaissance. Many of her books take place in the same North Dakota reservation community, which is based on her hometown.
