Explorations in Sights and Sounds
Love Medicine brings together the stories of the Kashpaws and Lamartines, two Chippewa families of North Dakota. Two major themes, love and death, produce both the continuity of the novel and of family traditions that are the foundation of each character's life. As different individuals tell their stories, the reader is given a multifaceted perspective of the events that influence the families over a fifty-year period.
