Very good read. I enjoyed the 'voices' of the characters. Van Camp, a Dene, uses authentic and humorous colloquial language through his characters. The author is a good storyteller and I will look for more of his books to read.
This is my first Richard Van Camp book. I think he may be an acquired taste, however I did enjoy most of the stories and was definitely moved and inspired by some.
Richard Van Camp is a wonderful storyteller. If you ever get the chance to hear him speak, I highly recommend it. That said, I could hear him narrating most of these stories while I read them, and those are the ones that made me smile and think a little more carefully about the things I take for granted. His stories are neat because they so expertly mix the familiar with the strange, and you remember how strange and wonderful your own life has been. I can't think of another author who inspires me more to tell my own stories and write down the stories that my parents and grandparents have told me.
