Summary
"Bitterroot traces Susan Devan Harness's journey to overcome the struggles of being an American Indian child, adopted by a white couple, and living in the rural American West. When Harness was fifteen years old, she questioned her adoptive dad about her "real" parents. He replied that they'd died in a car accident not long after she was born. Except they hadn't, as Harness would find out in a conversation with a social worker a few years later."--Provided by publisher
