Edition: First printing

Toronto: HarperCollins (Harper Collins), 1993. Octavo, cloth & boards, red endpapers. Small remainder dot on yellow top page edges, text paper lightly toned, light yellowing to upper outer corner of half-title leaf, else fine in fine jacket. no owner names, flap price intact. Second novel from this Canadian native author (half Cherokee), the story of five Blackfoot Indians, set in Alberta. Selected by the Literary Review of Canada as one of the 100 most important Canadian books. " No writer of this generation has so competently and enjoyably created such a potent mixture of traditional Native narrative with a postmodernistic style. While part of the book follows the lives of five Blackfoot Indians in Blossom, Alberta, their everyday stories are interwoven with more fantastic voices - the trickster Coyote’s interruptions, for example, or a retelling of Genesis with extra-crispy fried chicken. This book, so complex yet so simple, is extremely well written. It has managed to become a favourite of both academics and the average reader, which is not easy to do. - Drew Hayden Taylor". 000223999x
