Louise Erdrich’s latest novel is “The Night Watchman,” which is based on her grandfather’s extraordinary life. In 1953 a new “emancipation” bill was on its way to the floor of the U.S. Congress – this bill threatened Native American’s rights to their lands and, their very identity. Patrick Gourneau worked as a night watchman in the first manufacturing plant on the Turtle Mountain Reservation and he carried the fight against Native American dispossession from rural North Dakota to Washington. “The Night Watchman” is also available on CD and digitally through Overdrive/Libby and RBDigital.
