Thomas King's gentle, meandering narrative follows a small group of First Nations people engaged in the day-to-day - moving on after divorces, getting by at work, etc... yet while their lives go on, Coyote and four all-powerful elders get to work on fixing the world and undoing its racist iconography.

King has an amazing subversive sense of humor that never dismisses tragedy, and this really is a book that will have you laughing and crying at the same time.
