Louise Erdich's Night Watchman

This novel has ghost visitations, folklores and mystical visions, all running in parallel with down-to-earth, hardworking, tough people who're full of hope. A shaman looking for a missing woman, closes his eyes and in his vision finds her in an abandoned house, chained. When the sister of the missing woman goes looking for that abandoned house, the narration loses its magic realism and smacks you in the face with all the realism of creepiness and insecurities Native American women face when they're all alone.
