Summary
Traveling home to Ontario in 1919 with his elderly aunt, a young Cree man left wounded and morphine-addicted by the war struggles to come to terms with his years on the battlefields of France and Belgium, which drove his best friend, a fellow sniper, insane
Summary
The nephew of a Canadian Oji-Cree who is the last of a line of healers and diviners, Cree reserve student Xavier enlists in the military during World War I, a conflict throughout which he and his friend, Elijah, are marginalized for their appearances, their culturally enhanced marksmanship, and their disparate views of the war
