Bestselling nonfiction author of Don't Let's Go to the Dogs Tonight and Leaving Before the Rains Come, Alexandra Fuller releases her debut novel QUIET UNTIL THE THAW. Set in Lakota Oglala Sioux Nation, South Dakota, two Native American cousins Rick Overlooking Horse and You Choose Watson, though bound by blood and by land, find themselves at odds as they grapple with the implications of their shared heritage. A complex tale that spans generations and geography, QUIET UNTIL THE THAW conjures the implications of an oppressed history, how we are bound not just to immediate family but to all who have come before and will come after us, and, most of all, to the notion that everything was always, and is always, connected.

Alexandra Fuller was born in England in 1969. In 1972, she moved with her family to a farm in southern Africa. She lived in Africa until her mid twenties. In 1994, she moved to Wyoming.
