"The Road Home," by Jim Harrison. Grove/Atlantic. 416 pages. $25. Pine Ridge and the infamous Wounded Knee hover on the Nebraska landscape of Jim Harrison's deeply moving new novel, "The Road Home," sequel to his 1988 "Dalva." White and mixed blooded Native American characters alike mourn "the cruelty of what happened to our first citizens" in this lush and beautiful book, a tour de force of compassion. Of voices, there are five: the elderly half-Lakota Northridge; his great grandson Nelse; his daughter-in-law Naomi; his surviving son Paul; and his granddaughter Dalva herself in a heart-wrenchingly apocalyptic finale.

Chinese director Zhang Yimou's "The Road Home," which begins a limited run tonight at the Charles Theatre, is a cinematic ode to the everlasting power of love that offers all sorts of pleasures - director Zhang Yimou's easy lyricism, San Bao's hauntingly evocative score, cinematographer Hou Yong's beautifully sparse images of a remote Chinese village. But perhaps most memorably, it offers the chance to see a young Zhang Ziyi before she became The Next Big Thing on the heels of her starring role in "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon."

For viewers who like the tiniest drop of reality in their TV dramas, "The Road Home" is the road to skip on Saturday nights.The new CBS series, starring Nancy Allen and Terence Knox, is more like a TV ad than a TV drama. It's full of pretty pictures, some very pretty clothes, a dream of a house, and two scenes of a family reunited that come right off a Hallmark greeting card.The pilot opens with a happily married couple (Knox and Allen) and their kids driving to Allen's parents' house in North Carolina's Tidewater for a two-week summer vacation.

Take a leisurely stroll through the Baltimore County town of Glyndon and you quickly understand why the local history book is titled "Glyndon: The Story of a Victorian Village."Wander along Butler Road, meander down Central Avenue, detour to one of the side streets like Chatsworth. What you see are handsome old Victorian homes, many with gingerbread-edged rooflines, high gables, bay windows and lattice decorations.Built from the late 1870s to about 1915, these homes attest to Glyndon's beginnings as a town founded at the height of the Victorian Age. Less ornate than their city cousins, many of Glyndon's houses were built as summer homes for well-to-do families seeking to escape the heat of downtown Baltimore.

Except for the premiere of a new CBS drama series that reunites two producers and two stars of "St. Elsewhere," all the action tonight is on cable. Heading the list: a wild and delightfully mature cartoon series called "Duckman," and the TV premiere of a wild and delightfully immature movie called "Groundhog Day."* "Never Say Never Again." (8 p.m.-11 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- Actually, in this case, it wouldn't have been such a bad idea. Most of the plots and stunts seem purloined from previous Bond stories and movies, and Klaus Maria Brandauer, as the villain, lights up the screen a lot more than Sean Connery's female costar, Kim Basinger.

Former Terps women's basketball players Marissa Coleman and Kim Rodgers sat quietly at a table in Looney's Bar and Pub on Route 1 in College Park as Sunday's Final Four game came to an end. Maryland lost, 87-61, to undefeated Notre Dame at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville Sunday, ending an inspired run to the national semifinal. The Fighting Irish (37-0) dominated the Terps (28-7) and led by 17 at halftime, en route to their third championship appearance in four years.

There's nothing like a housing slump to challenge the notion that buying a house is smarter than renting. Even in a rising market, there are times when shelling out monthly rent can make more sense than a mortgage payment. Add the anxiety generated by a down market, and all bets are off. "When you live in a house whose value goes down over the short term and you have a small down payment, then you can get stuck," noted Holden Lewis, who follows mortgage issues for Bankrate.com. At the very least, you could end up paying more to own than you would to rent.

Keri became a teacher's assistant in her 10-year-old daughter's elementary school. The kids joined community soccer and softball leagues. They named their third child - a "rainbow after the storm," they say - Camden, in tribute to Baltimore.

With the thermometer in the 90s and the era of ice-slicked roads, bruised tailbones, and fender benders long past, Baltimore County residents have yet to rid themselves of the last vestige of the worst winter in recent memory -- slag.Highway crews dumped 40,000 tons of the dusty, gritty cinders on county roads when they ran out of salt, and the effort to clean up the mess is still only "60 to 70 percent" complete, said Charles K. Weiss, chief of the Baltimore County Bureau of Solid Waste Management.

About once a week, David Baker loads up his race car and makes the 40-mile trip from his home to an off-road track in Parkton. Upon arrival, he performs a system check before firing up the engine and sending the car zipping around the twisting, turning, hilly dirt track. However, the degree of danger is minimal, given that Baker positions himself in a driver's stand overlooking the track and uses a control box to "drive" his 16-inch, 10-pound radio-controlled racer. "You can fine tune them almost like you would a full-size race car," the 42-year-old Carroll County resident said.
