MembersReviewsPopularityAverage ratingConversations
1None7,857,292NoneNone
When Owen Allands is jailed for hunting on band land, the Fort Goodweatherday community decides everything would be fine if their town just appeared on provincial road maps. But since complaining about it hasn't solved anything, they decide to be friendly and head to Victoria, B.C., to give the white people a hand with their problems. A Short History of Indians in Canada, Thomas King's bestselling collection of twenty tales, is a comic tour de force, showcasing the author at his hilarious and provocative best. With his razor-sharp observations and mystical characters, including the ever-present and ever-changing Coyote, King pokes a sharp stick into the gears of the Native myth-making machine, exposing the underbelly of both historical and contemporary Native-White relationships. Through the laughter, these stories shimmer brightly with the universal truths that unite us. HarperCollins brings great works of literature to life in digital format, upholding the highest standards in ebook production and celebrating reading in all its forms. Look for more titles in the HarperCollins short-stories collection to build your digital library.… (more)
