520    "When Lissa Yellow Bird was released from prison in 2009, 
       she found her home, the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation 
       in North Dakota, transformed by the Bakken oil boom. In 
       her absence, the landscape had been altered beyond 
       recognition, her tribal government swayed by corporate 
       interests, and her community burdened by a surge in 
       violence and addiction. Three years later, when Lissa 
       learned that a young white oil worker, Kristopher 'KC' 
       Clarke, had disappeared from his reservation worksite, she
       became particularly concerned. No one knew where Clarke 
       had gone, and no one but his mother was actively looking 
       for him. Unfolding like a gritty mystery, Yellow Bird 
       traces Lissa's steps as she obsessively hunts for clues to
       Clarke's disappearance. She navigates two worlds -- that 
       of her own tribe, changed by its newfound wealth, and that
       of the non-Native oil workers, down on their luck, who 
       have come to find work on the heels of the economic 
       recession. Her pursuit becomes an effort at redemption -- 
       an atonement for her own crimes and a reckoning with 
       generations of trauma. Yellow Bird is both an exquisitely 
       written, masterfully reported story about a search for 
       justice and a remarkable portrait of a complex woman who 
       is smart, funny, eloquent, compassionate, and -- when it 
       serves her cause -- manipulative. Ultimately, it is a deep
       examination of the legacy of systematic violence inflicted
       on a tribal nation and a tale of extraordinary healing"--
