A Yellow Raft in Blue Water
NY, Henry Holt, (1987). The second printing of his highly praised first novel. Dorris was a professor at Dartmouth College and responsible for starting the Native American Studies Program there and was of Irish, French and Modoc Indian descent himself. He was married to writer Louise Erdrich, also part-Native American, and the two co-wrote several books; they claimed in interviews to have collaborated on all their books, including her bestselling and award-winning novels as well as this book and Dorris' book of nonfiction, The Broken Cord, which won the National Book Critics Circle Award. Inscribed by the author to the wife of the President of Dartmouth College "in the pleasure of good friendship and with affection." A nice personal association copy. Fine in a fine dust jacket.
