Description


"Linda Hogan's remarkable gift is a language of her own, moving gracefully between ordinary conversation and the embrace of divinity…Power is a haunting, beautiful testament." —Barbara Kingsolver


When sixteen-year-old Omishto, a member of the Taiga Tribe, witnesses her Aunt Ama kill a panther-an animal considered to be a sacred ancestor of the Taiga people-she is suddenly torn between her loyalties to her Westernized mother, who wants her to reject the ways of the tribe, and to Ama and her traditional people, for whom the killing of the panther takes on grave importance.

Praise For…


Power is a beautifully written story, that rare book that comes along once in a while, touching the deep parts of our humanness and calling us…to be better than we are.


[Hogan] has written a book about a crisis of belief that is dizzying in its depths, a book that is a testament to the ability of people to imagine what they cannot articulate.

Hogan's Power is a bildungsroman. It is a lament for the animals and plants we have so heedlessly extinguished and it is also a story hopeful for the restoration of a world in balance.


A deceptively straightforward novel, at least in its telling, that sneaks up to unsettle by making us take a fresh look at what may seem familiar.
