Power
A haunting story of forces beyond the human world. It is a book to treasure and read for the voice of Omishto, the main character, a young woman strong enough to go against the colonizing systems that hold her indigenous people away from their traditional ways.

"Absorbing and lyrical, Power is a book to savor. Rich, many-flavored, intense, it is alive with Earth's awesome vitality. A must read."
–Paula Gunn Allen

Solar Storms
"A book you’ll want to read slowly…this book’s unflinching wisdom and extraordinarily beautiful language should make it a classic of American literature."
–Julie Parson-Nesbit, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

"A novel that instructs the heart as it binds its curative spell. With her unparalleled gifts for truth and magic, Linda Hogan reinforces my faith in reading writing, living."
–Barbara Kingsolver

People of the Whale
A compassionate novel about the beauty of the natural world and the painful moral choices humans make in it. With a keen sense of the environment, spirituality, and the trauma of war, People of the Whale is a powerful novel for our times from a writer who continues to take on the most difficult contemporary Native issues.

"In her remarkable new novel, Hogan ... explores themes of love and loss among the A'atsika people of Washington State ... [Her] style is both dreamlike and realistic, with a nonlinear narrative that loops back on itself as more and more is revealed."
