Description

 In The Woman Who Watches Over the World: A Native Memoir by Chickasaw writer Linda Hogan, the author says she sat down to write a book about pain and ended up writing about love. She recounts her difficult childhood as the daughter of an army sergeant, her love affair at age fifteen with an older man, the legacy of alcoholism, the troubled history of her adopted daughters, and her own physical struggles since a recent horse accident. She deftly weaves these personal memories with stories of important Native American figures from history to create a positive account of redemption and love.
