Sintesi dell'editore

Set in the Lake Superior region in the mid-1800s, The Birchbark House is a vital novel providing fascinating details of a year in the life of young Omakayas, a girl of the Ojibwa.

With exquisite care, National Book Critics Circle Award winner Louise Erdrich has fashioned a story rich in the way of life and heritage of the Ojibwa people, a story that begs to be told out loud. As each season in a year of Omakayas' life is lovingly portrayed, the satisfying rhythm of her days is shattered when a stranger visits the lodge one night, bringing with him an invisible enemy that will change things forever.

©1999 Louise Erdrich (P)2002 Audio Bookshelf

"Littrell's soothing, finely tuned reading of The Birchbark House evokes the atmosphere of this thoughtful, rich story about the daily activities of an Ojibwa girl." (Booklist)
"Nicolle Littrell narrates with a gentle and quiet voice. Her presentation is light and immediate, giving the listener to bear witness to each event." (AudioFile)

A remarkable book

I got this book for my granddaughter, but listened to it myself first. I became engrossed with the characters and story. Louise Erdrich brings to this story the same sense of place and depth of character that she brings to her books for adult readers. Enjoyable and worthwhile.

My children loved listening to this story with me

Simple gentle. If you like Willa Cather, you'll probably like this. My children loved listening to this story. Good for a long midwest drive.

Authentic

This story feels very authentic, giving much information about Anishanabe life - their survival and interdependence with nature, their love of family and the ways they laugh and cry, work and play together. I love the way the end ties to the beginning......

My husband & daughter loved listening, too!

In preparation for the upcoming school year, I decided to listen to this novel on my iPhone while doing chores around the house this summer. It’s a lovely perfectly sweet story. But much to my surprise, my three year old girl started bringing the book in the room to look at the pictures while I would work. She started asking me to let her listen at bedtime. That’s when my husband also took interest. Having the audio book turned my “professional “ reading into family reading.

We loved this story so much as a family!

This is a very moving story but does have a few spiritual bits in it. Overall it is a good story and very exciting.
