New York Times bestselling author Jim Harrison (1937–2016) was one of America’s most beloved writers, and Dalva, now in a Grove edition for the first time, is considered among his finest novels. Beautiful and fearless, at forty-five Dalva has lived a life of lovers and adventures. But, from her home in California, she still hears the broad silence of the Nebraska prairie where she was born, and longs for the son she gave up for adoption. So Dalva begins a journey back to her family, to a great-grandfather whose journals recount the bloody annihilation of the Plains Nations. On the way, she discovers a story that stretches from the Civil War to Wounded Knee and Vietnam—and finds the balm to heal her wounded soul.
