Winona was selected by Ms. magazine as one of its "Women of the Year" for 1997, and by Time magazine as one of its "50 For The Future:" America's most promising leaders under 40. She was also Ralph Nader's vice-presidential candidate on the Green Party ticket in the 1996 presidential election. An Anishinaabe, she lives with her two children on the White Earth Reservation in Minnesota.From Library Journal:
Native American activist LaDuke, a Harvard-educated member of the Anishinaabe Nation, has given us a powerful first novel that presents the lives of seven generations of Anishinaabe (Ojibwe/Chippewa) from initial contact with whites in the 1860s to a surprisingly utopian peak in conditions early in the next century. LaDuke's characters are as vital and fully realized as any in a Louise Erdrich novel, but instead of dwelling on the quiet desperation of their lives, as Erdrich so often does, LaDuke finds ways for them to surmount their circumstances and offer support for one another. Following the lives of a series of women named Last Standing Woman, LaDuke's chronicle moves to the beat of the drums that symbolize Native culture and its survival despite the odds. A fine work; recommended for both public and academic libraries.?Debbie Bogenschutz, Cincinnati Technical Coll.
