Two-time finalist for the prestigious Journey Prize, literary bright light Krista Foss’s debut novel SMOKE RIVER, pitched in the tradition of Louise Erdrich, about two very different families struggling with suspicions and hard truths. When a barricade on a housing development of contested land exposes fault lines in a community where Natives and whites have lived side by side for decades and a beautiful young Mohawk girl disappears, tensions reach an explosive pitch.
