Seven Generations is a historically accurate novel of successive generations of a Shoshone Indian family from 1825 to 2013. The first part contains the stories of Trees-Told-It; a Shoshone Indian who was born to the "old way" in 1825 then lived a life of turmoil until he died as a reservation Indian in 1910. In the second part, his daughter becomes the second wife in a Mormon home of Utah pioneers in the 1880s. Part three is the memory of the grandson of Trees-Told-It going to Indian boarding school and becoming a soldier in the trenches of WWI. In the fourth generation, Erickson moves to the Pacific Northwest, where he is present for the building of the dams and works in the uranium mines in the 1950s. Chapter five tells of coming home from World War II, and the "relocation" program. In the sixth generation, brothers fight in the US Marines in Operation Enduring Freedom. The last chapter tells of a thirteen year-old girl and her family living today on the Wind River Reservation in Wyoming.
