Contributor Notes

A Dogrib (Tlicho) Dene from Fort Smith, NWT, now living in Vancouver, Richard Van Camp is an internationally renowned storyteller and best—selling author. His previous work includes The Lesser Blessed .

Editorial Review

"Van Camp, a Dogrib from Fort Smith, NWT, which hides superficially in his town Fort Simmer, gives us a vision of the North which in its own way is as distinct and rich as Flannery O’Connor's South." — Winnipeg Free Press

"Again drawing on his Dogrib Nation background [Van Camp seamlessly blends the beauty, violence, and pride of Aboriginal life with brutally disarming prose."— Quill and Quire

"Richard Van Camp is a magical storyteller in the old—school sense, fully capable of holding an audience enthralled with his voice alone. . . These are important stories, recounted with deep compassion and an unflinching eye." — The Georgia Straight

"Vancouver—based Richard Van Camp is arguably one of the leading short story writers in Canada. Van Camp. . . has so clearly listened to how people talk, the music and spirit of their language becoming his." — The Coast

"Van Camp is a masterful storyteller who knows how to reach even the most cynical of hearts. The collection is compelling. It is both an homage to hopefulness and a departure from it." — Vancouver Review

"Van Camp’s stories are a box of fine chocolates, some sweet, some bittersweet. All of them delicious." — Thomas King, author of Green Grass, Running Water

"Van Camp's stories are about the sheer exuberance of storytelling. . . " — Canadian Literature
