A Look Inside
Unpaid Annotation
From internationally acclaimed author Joseph Boyden comes an astonishingly powerful novel of contemporary Aboriginal life, full of the dangers and harsh beauty of both forest and city. When beautiful Suzanne Bird disappears after moving to the city, her sister Annie, a loner and hunter, is compelled to go in search of her. To follow her sister's trail, Annie must leave behind their uncle, Will, a man haunted by loss. While Annie travels from Toronto to New York, from modelling studios to A-list parties, Will encounters dire troubles. Both eventually come to painful discoveries about the inescapable ties of family. Winner of the 2008 Giller Prize, Through Black Spruce is an utterly unforgettable consideration of how we discover who we really are.
