Originally published in Canada in 1977, and only now available in the United States, this collection by a white writing from an Indian perspective offers many delights, chief of which are the good storytelling, the ingenue as central narrator, the moderately exotic setting (Alberta), and the human values that charge every scene. Characters that are now stock (the fat medicine woman, the Indian girl marrying not necessarily up but off the reserve) join absolute originals in a series of alternately poignant, dramatic, frightening, depressing, and comic incidents. Reappearing characters and a modified dialect make for some minor repetitions (the stories first appeared separately) but also serve to unify the collection. Recommended for most libraries.
