 On a winter's day, Rosalie returns to her childhood home where she had grown up with her father Ray, a former science teacher who tells her stories of plants, of the stars, of the origins of the Dakota people. One morning, Ray doesn't return from checking his traps. Rosalie is told she has no relatives and is put into foster care. Now, a widow and mother, Rosalee goes back to her childhood home to search for family and to search for herself.  A grieving, Rosalie begins to confront the past, on a search for family, identity, and a community where she can finally belong. In the process, she learns what it means to be descended from women with souls of iron--women who have protected their families, their traditions, and a precious cache of seeds through generations of hardship and loss.

"Compelling . . . The Seed Keeper invokes the strength that women, land, and plants have shared with one another through the generations." -ROBIN WALL KIMMERER
