From Pulitzer Prize finalist Linda Hogan, Solar Storms tells the moving, "luminous" ( Publishers Weekly ) story of Angela Jenson, a troubled Native American girl coming of age in the foster system in Oklahoma, who decides to reunite with her family.

At seventeen, Angela returns to the place where she was raised--a stunning island town that lies at the border of Canada and Minnesota--where she finds that an eager developer is planning a hydroelectric dam that will leave sacred land flooded and abandoned. Joining up with three other concerned residents, Angela fights the project, reconnecting with her ancestral roots as she does so.

Harrowing, lyrical, and boldly incisive, Solar Storms is a powerful examination of the clashes between cultures and traumatic repercussions that have shaped American history.

This is an outstanding books and should stand near the top of all Indigenous book lists, as well as general book lists. Deeply moving, integrating spiritual elements in a remarkably accessible way for a variety of readers. I was completely absorbed in this book in all of its ethereal beauty, and felt that is was simultaneously escapist and confronting of important societal and human issues.
