There, in the beautiful wilderness of Leeanau County, she meets Mishe Masaube, a Chippewa Indian, the man she will marry and by whom she will bear three daughters--Blossom Rose, Lilly, and Puma.

Each daughter, exotically beautiful, with looks that defy all racial labels, ventures out into the wold to discover her destiny, and the double-edged sword of assimilation.Haunting and magical, Mischief Makers is a visionary novel of color and class in America, and it confirms Nettie Jones as one of the major female black writers in the United States today.
