In a somewhat fictional retelling of her family’s stories, Mihesuah chronicles the lives of several generations as they are forced from their traditional lands in Mississippi through their sorrowful journey to Oklahoma. Through the voices of family members living and not living, Mihesuah tells stories of courageous and quirky relatives, strong women, bonepickers, medicine people, ghost owls and not-human killers, and a horse with a hole in his head that should’ve killed him but didn’t. In the linked stories of The Roads of My Relations, readers will find persistence, courage and survival; and the strength that comes with being tied to land, culture and community forever.
