This is a fine collection of short stories and essays by nine of Canada's brilliant Aboriginal writers. The variety in the stories' settings, times, tones, styles and purposes is striking. The writers were asked to base their stories on definitive moments in the history of their nations, so these range from the Iroquois Creation Story to the Inuits' meeting with the Vikings and to 1960 when the Indians were given the right to vote. The range from very serious to charming, amusing and highly thoughtful.
