The voice of Native narrator Tai Amy Grauman is as clear and cool as the waters of Canada's St. James Bay, where this novel of a Cree woman's vision quest takes place. Victoria is a Cree poet and shaman who travels through the coniferous forests of northern Quebec to find the bones of her great-uncle and set his spirit free. Many tales and legends of these Indigenous people are recounted, and listeners hear words in the Cree language, as well as in perfectly accented French. There is sensitivity to Cree culture and traditions, as well as an awareness of the scourges that plague Native life, such as alcoholism, spousal abuse, and poverty.
