Louise Erdrich's intense, lyrical novel tells the story of two families-the Ojibwas and the Porters-who are connected by the trauma of the American Revolution. The Bingo Palace is a dilapidated, haunted hotel that is the last stop on the railroad line. It is also the site of an ancient Indian burial ground. In the summer of 1884, the hotel is sold to the Porters, who are new arrivals in the area. The Ojibwas have long believed that the hotel is haunted by the ghosts of the Revolution. The Porters are skeptical, but soon discover that the hotel is indeed haunted. They are also forced to confront their own ghosts-of the past and of the present. Erdrich's lush, evocative prose brings the characters and the haunted hotel to life.; FSA.
