Love Medicine is Louise Erdrich’s first novel, published in 1984. Erdrich revised and expanded the novel for an edition issued in 1993, and then revised it again for the 2009 edition. The book explores 60 years in the lives of a small group of Chippewa (also known as Ojibwa or Anishinaabe) living on an unnamed Ojibwe Reservation in North Dakota (possibly based on the Turtle Mountain Indian Reservation). Love Medicine won the 1984 National Book Critics Circle Award.
