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."
