A beautifully crafted story of one woman's journey to find her son. From her home on the California coast, Dalva hears the broad silence of the Nebraska prairie where she was born and longs for the son she gave up for adoption years before. Beautiful, fearless, tormented, at forty-five she has lived a life of lovers and adventures. Now, Dalva begins a journey that will take her back to the bosom of her family, to the half-Sioux lover of her youth, and to a pioneering great-grandfather whose journals recount the bloody annihilation of the Plains Indians.

Dalva and The Road Home are Harrison's best and I loved them. Family saga, history, nature, animals, love and tenderness all so beautifully portrayed. I would like to find a Canadian equivalent. Always the native american is part of the plot or the ghost of the sad ends like a shadow behind the present drama.
