This is the story of Jim Harrison's captivating heroine, Dalva, and her peculiar and remarkable family. It encompasses the voices of Dalva's grandfather, John Northridge, the austere half-Sioux patriarch; Naomi, the widow of his favourite son and namesake; Paul, the first Northridge son, who lived in the shadow of his brother; and Nelse, the son taken from Dalva at birth who has now returned to find her. It is a family history drenched in suffering and joy, imbued with fierce independence and love, rooted in the Nebraska soil, and intertwined with the destiny of whites and Native Americans in the American West.Epic in scope, stretching from the close of the nineteenth century to the present day, "The Road Home" is a stunning and trenchant novel written with humour, humanity, and an inimitable evocation of the American spirit. 'One of the greatest modern storytellers in American literature at the peak of his formidable form in this epic, multi-generational saga, both prequel and sequel to his earlier Dalva. The century-spanning story of the Northridge family, set in the startling wilds of Nebraska, is full of wonderful writing and characters whose lives become part of the fabric of your own. Unforgettable.' - "The Sunday Times".
