"Poverty" has always been more than three wind-battered homes and an old Catalina that doubles as a bedroom. It sits on a barren landscape that was once peppered with one-hundred-year-old pines and now houses as many mysteries as it does lives. Jeannette, Duke, and Ellis were the first to make Poverty a home. They are the guardians, the ones who remember what was once taken from them. Chapter by chapter, as each character takes up the narrative, we learn about the way life is lived on this Indian reservation. Here rumors swirl like the snow drifts that alter the landscape in the bitter winter. It was the snow that first brought them Donovan, the boy who acts as caretaker for Little, the strange younger brother who was born with fused claws for hands. All through his short and enigmatic life Little had only one word: you.

"Mr. Treuer's accomplishment is a wonder. Out of the seasons and landscapes of a Minnesota reservation David Treuer has forged a strong intricate narrative complete with the intimate voices of fully realized characters."--Toni Morrison
"Treuer is a writer of remarkable strengths. He is posed, lyrical, compassionate, knowledgeable, wise, and inventive."--Abby Frucht, "The Philadelphia Inquirer"
"Stunning . . . So finely conceived, so deftly composed, it nearly defies analysis, description, and most certainly criticism . . . Treuer has written a masterpiece, a book that might easily become a classic of North American literature."--Selma Rabinowitz, " The Hungry Mind Review"
"A full and subtle protrait of Indian life."--James Polk, "The Washington Post Book World"
