La description

Many of the stories in Harry Robinson’s second collection feature the shoo-MISH, or ?nature helpers” that assist humans and sometimes provide them with special powers. Some tell of individuals who use these powers to heal themselves; others tell of Indian doctors who have been given the power to heal others. Still others tell of power encounters: a woman ?comes alive” after death; a boy meets a singing squirrel; a voice from nowhere predicts the future.

“Epic, mesmerizing tales by a great Okanagan storyteller that lift [one] earily and movingly into a different world.”
