Along the Journey River: A Mystery

Carole Lafavor

Follow the trail of sacred ceremonial objects stolen from the Minnesota Red Earth Reservation's Ojibwa tribe in this first-of-its-genre Native-American lesbian mystery. The list of suspects grows - white racists from a town bordering the rez, a young Indian man struggling with problems at home, the county coroner and his cohorts - as Tribal Chairman Jed Morriseau, often disliked, always powerful, is found murdered. Renee LaRoche is caught up in these events, drawn by the traditions of her tribe and honor of her family into tracking the thieves and investigating the killing. As she struggles to sustain a new relationship with Samantha Salisbury, a visiting women's studies professor at the white college in nearby Granite Rock, Renee finds herself torn between the ways of her people and helping her chimook lover come to terms with the differences in their cultures.
