“A Yellow Raft in Blue Water”

by Michael Dorris

BOOK REVIEW:
“Michael Dorris has crafted a fierce saga of three generations of Indian women, beset by hardships and torn by angry secrets, yet inextricably joined by the bonds of kinship. Starting in the present day and moving backward, the novel is told in the voices of the three women: fifteen-year-old part-black Rayona; her American Indian mother, Christine, consumed by tenderness and resentment toward those she loves; and the fierce and mysterious Ida, mother and grandmother whose haunting secrets, betrayals, and dreams echo through the years, braiding together the strands of the shared past.”
—Powell's City of Books

“Eloquent. . . much of the power of Yellow Raft lies in its strong and disparate voices, each of a female generation, entwined with the others and yet fighting for breath.”
—The Boston Globe

“An unforgettable portrait of Native Americans. . . a rich, multi-layered portrayal of complex events . . . the language is straight from the barrel, and the emotions conjured up are straight from the heart.”
—Newsday

HOSTED BY:
Mike Bank ’54 & Adrianne Fine Bank ’54
