1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Paul Harris on 12 Oct. 2010
Format: Paperback
A very moving examination of a way of life under threat from the continuing White settlement and commercial expansion and exploitation of natural resources in northeast British Columbia, Canada. Brody's insight is coloured by his 18 month sojourn with the First Nation bands of the area. The chapters alternate between his beautifully and respectfully written accounts of various key moments in the annual season, with relevant essays exploring in some detail the different aspects of the historic betrayals and increasing pressures and restrictions on the Indians' way of living on their own land.

An early chapter retells a hunting trip to the Bluestone area. The dreams of the hunters play their part in guiding the itinerary, and the soul of these men and women is conveyed to the reader with considerable art and delicacy by Hugh Brody.

Occasionally becomes a touch dry with some of the extensive detail covering the Indian economy , but on the whole the book is very informative and written with passion and sensitivity for the subject.
