    Heartbreaking and BRILLIANT Louise Erdrich makes your soul weep and then fills it with joyful perspective .

    This short story was an interesting, but sad, story about loss and tradition But I also loved the undertone, whether this was done on purpose by the author or not, of psychology that you could detect in the story in reaction to death and grief The only reason I am only giving the story four stars is due to the fact that I found some parts a little dull.
