“A Native American man out hunting aims and fires to take a deer near his neighbor’s property line. Instead, he finds a boy, the neighbor’s 5-year-old son lying covered in blood. The boy dies. The hunter gives his own son to the neighbor family to try to make good the loss. The “old way,” he says. But novelist Louise Erdrich reminds us nothing is simple when old ways meet modern life. This hour On Point: Louise Erdrich on her new novel LaRose, and the Native American way in modern America.”
