With a critical yet darkly amusing approach, King explores the Native American experience with Europeans and their North American descendants over the last five centuries. Narrator Lorne Cardinal, who is a highly regarded person of Cree heritage, nails the audiobook's delivery with a deep pitch and a slightly raspy timbre. King delves into popular culture, treaties and law, cultural practices, and Native American resistance, in particular noting historical tensions and confrontations with emphasis on the exploitation of native peoples by whites. But the playful King never misses an opportunity to make a joke or an amusing observation. This is where Cardinal demonstrates his acting chops, adjusting his voice to the perfect level of bemusement, irony, or snark to elicit smiles and chuckles of understanding from listeners.
