A soldier deserts the cavalry during a cruel raid on an Ojibwa village to chase a dog bearing on its back a baby on a cradle board strung with breathtaking blue beads. Generations later, a fast-talking trader kidnaps a silent and graceful woman from a powwow. In a haunting re-creation of a native tale, the woman is part antelope. Hunter and hunted change identities, and nothing is ever the same for those involved.
World Fantasy Award, 1999
"The Antelope Wife stands as one of [Louise Erdrich's] most powerful and fully imagined novels yet...the book marks a happy return to the elliptical, dreamlike storytelling of Ms. Erdrich's earliest novels." (Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times)

I could not get past the recording of this book.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
The audio quality is not good. It sounds like the author read into a cassette player.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Frustration! I have enjoyed other works by this author and this recording was not good.

sound is so awful, I could not listen
This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
I love Louise Erdrich's works, and was expecting a great experience, but the sound was so awful that I could not stand listening to more than 5 minutes of the novel.
