This short story collection was a complete surprise. The cover makes it look like a boring history tome but I was on the lookout for Canadian short story collections and found it in the library catalogues as such. The contributors are an impressive bunch and their stories were (nearly all) incredible. My favs were by Thomas King, Michelle Berry and Roch Carrier; my least favs the ones sticking too closely to a history lesson.
