      My comment re: The Fencepost Chronicles by this author applies regarding this collection, as well. Note also, that W.P. Kinsella won the George Woodcock Award for an outstanding literary career in BC; very recently, in fact: Spring 2009

      By the author of Field of Dreams, short stories set in a Canadian Reserve. Reserve is Canadian for Indian Reservation. Funny, sad, picaresque stories.

Came off totally different. Really good. Better. Had my sister read it. She liked it too. Stylistically I like how every story reintroduces recurring characters

    7. Allan McLeod

      A charming and humorous collection of short stories of life on a First Nations (Indian) reservation in Western Canada's province of Alberta. I will read more from this author.
