Description 1 online resource
Summary Follow Garry Gottfriedson in this new collection of combative poems as he compels us and Heaven to listen to the challenges facing First Nation communities today. Employing many of the Secwepemc (Shuswap) images and stories, Gottfriedson takes us inside the rez and into the rooming houses in the city cores, but always drawing new strength from the land and the people who have moved upon it. He speaks of "the smell of grandmothers and grandfathers / breathing the stories into our blood" so as to "wrap our newborn in freshly made Star Quilts."
