9780802143310: Returning to Earth: A Novel

In the universally-praised Returning to Earth, Jim Harrison has delivered a masterpiece a tender, profound, and magnificent novel about life, death, and the possibility of finding redemption in unlikely places. Donald is a middle-aged Chippewa-Finnish man slowly dying of Lou Gehrig’s disease. His condition deteriorating, he realizes no one will be able to pass on to his children their family history once he is gone. He begins dictating to his wife, Cynthia, stories he has never shared with anyone as around him, his family struggles to lay him to rest with the same dignity with which he has lived. Over the course of the year following Donald’s death, his daughter begins studying Chippewa ideas of death for clues about her father’s religion, while Cynthia, bereft of the family she created to escape the malevolent influence of her own father, finds that redeeming the past is not a lost cause. Returning to Earth is a deeply moving book about origins and endings, making sense of loss, and living with honor for the dead. It is among the finest novels of Harrison’s long, storied career, and confirms his standing as one of the most important American writers now working.

From AudioFile :

Donald Burkett is 45 and dying. The Chippewa-Finnish man, first introduced in TRUE NORTH, determines to chronicle his family's history before he dies of Lou Gehrig's disease. The exceptional cast, including Traci Svendsgaard, Ray Porter, Tom Weiner, and Paul Michael Garcia, present his story, sometimes harshly, sometimes tenderly, but always unsentimentally and truthfully. Beginning in 1871, with the ancestors who came to Michigan's Upper Peninsula, and moving between past and present, Donald describes lives lived against a background of nature, a world filled with violence, love, the unknown, and the possible. In this beautiful, spiritual book, the narrators offer impressive performances, bringing a welcome clarity to each human moment.
