Fiction. Native American Studies. Red Shoes, the most formidable Choctaw warrior of the eighteenth century, was assassinated by his own people. Why does his death haunt Auda Billy, an Oklahoma Choctaw woman accused in 1991 of murdering Choctaw Chief Redford McAlester? Moving between the known details of Red Shoes' life and the riddle of McAlester's death, this novel traces the history of the Billy women whose destiny it is to solve both murders—with the help of a powerful spirit known as the Shell Shaker.

"LeAnne Howe has done it. SHELL SHAKER is an elegant, powerful and knock out story. I'm blown away."—Joy Harjo

About the Author:

LeAnne Howe is an enrolled citizen of the Choctaw Nation and a Professor of American Indian Studies and English at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She writes fiction, poetry, screenplays, creative non-fiction, plays, and scholarship that primarily deal with American Indian experiences. Her short fiction has appeared in The Kenyon Review, Fiction International, and Story among other journals and has been translated into French, Italian, German, Dutch, and Danish. Her novel, Shell Shaker (Aunt Lute Books, 2001), received an American Book Award in 2002. Equinoxes Rouge, the French translation, was the 2004 finalist for Prix Medici Estranger. She is the author of two additional titles from Aunt Lute, MIKO KINGS: AN INDIAN BASEBALL STORY (2007) and, most recently, CHOCTALKING ON OTHER REALITIES (2013). As a 2010 -2011 William J. Fulbright Scholar, Howe lived in Amman, Jordan to research her forthcoming novel. In 2012, she was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Native Writers' Circle of the Americas, and in December 2012, Howe received a USA Ford Fellowship to continue her research.

Book Description Aunt Lute Books. Paperback. Condition: New. 216 pages. A dangerous enemy has arrived on our shores with weapons of fire . . . Hes a very different kind of Wasano, bloodsucker, he always hungers for more. from Shell Shaker The action in this debut novel alternates between 1738, as a Choctaw family prepares for war against the English, and the 1990s, as their Oklahoma descendants, the Billys, fight a Mafia takeover of the tribes casino. In trouble with the law and in the fight of their lives, the Billy women must find a way, as their ancestors did, to join forces against a devious foe. Humor, toughness, and resourcefulness are the Billys only weapons. Until the Shell Shaker shows up. LeAnne Howe, an enrolled member of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma, is a fiction writer, playwright, scholar and poet whose writings on Choctaw women are drawn from both personal experience and scholarly research. Her short fiction has appeared in several anthologies, including Through the Eye of the Deer, Returning the Gift, Spider Womans Granddaughters, and Earth Song, Sky Spirit, as well as in journals such as Callaloo and Fiction International. Howe has read her fiction and lectured throughout the United States, Japan and the Middle East, and her plays have been produced in Los Angeles and New York City. She has also presented programs on recruitment and retention of American Indians at universities and colleges. Currently, she teaches in the English Department at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. In 1991, Howe received a National Endowment for the Humanities grant to conduct research for Shell Shaker. This item ships from multiple locations.
