Clean, tight, unmarked; light wear to inside corners; age tanned; otherwise spine straight and uncreased; absolute minimal wear; appears unread; The superbly crafted stories in this collection trace four generations of the Lafreniere family in the fictional small town of Agassiz, Manitoba, from the time of the great flood of 1950 to the present. There is Mika, the matriarch of the family, tired of being a mother to her children, and her Metis husband, Maurice, who is by turns fascinated by and ashamed of his Native heritage. Their marriage has long been an uneasy truce. As their children grow up to pursue their own lives, the frustrations of one generation will collide with the dreams of another, and the past will leave an indelible mark on all that is to come. Agassiz Stories is at once funny and heartbreaking, and written with a rare, illuminating honesty.
