It’s tempting to say that Yellow Bird is kin to Killers of the Flower Moon, but that diminishes the experiences of everyone involved in said events and books. There is water and oil in Yellow Bird, massive flooding and fracking that loosens the literal roots of the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation. There is Lissa Yellow Bird — felon drug addict mother daughter frantic — who hunts for the missing while forgetting about her own family. Yellow Bird is a knot of politics and history, culture and crime, and the years of intergenerational trauma threading it all together. I read it in a day, unable to tear myself away from the stories and memories shared within. —Rachel
