Product description


One Drum is the perfect reading companion to witness the stories, principles and ceremonies Richard Wagamese believed in, and took to for strength and renewal as one of Canada’s most beloved authors. These were the places Wagamese went to compose his literary masterpieces … One Drum is a field of medicines for everyone. Mahsi cho.”

Richard Van Camp, author

“The many readers who have been moved and instructed by this author’s luminously beautiful, intelligent and clear-eyed fiction will find in One Drum evidence of the teachings and ceremonies that allowed him to survive and create … Wagamese died too soon, but before he died he created a legacy for his readers. His earlier works will sustain his well-deserved reputation, and anyone who loves this author’s work will welcome this final volume, which provides a look behind the finished works to the spiritual and emotional disciplines that supported his writing … Highly recommended.”

-- Tom Sandborn ― Vancouver Sun

One Drum is one of the most moving, powerful, and profoundly spiritual books that I’ve ever read. I feel honored to have found this beautiful gem.


Susan Miller, Seattle Book Review
