Clean, tight, unmarked; school stamp and small sticker on title page; stamp on bottom edge; otherwise very minimal wear; spine straight and uncreased; appears unread; With Elijah Harper's symbolic blockage of the Meech Lake Accord and the high intensity of the Mohawk Warrior Society's defiant stand, 1990 marked a significant change for both First Nations and all the other people living in Canada. Sundogs is a novel about the struggle of a young First Nations family for love and solidarity in the context of that turbulent year. From urban Vancouver, to a small town in the Okanagan Valley, and across the country on a desperate bid for peace between the Canadian government and the Mohawk Nation, Marianne, Sundog's heroine, finds a moment of peace from the confusion and dis-unity in her own life. In returning to the beliefs of her ancestry, she comes to chart the course of her life anew. Through Sundogs, Lee Maracle takes the reader on a cultural and spiritual journey into the heart of First Nations country. The agony, the joy and humour of First Nation's people makes the novel a lively and inspirational piece of work. Sundogs presents the reader an intimate look at the lives of one family during the momentous events surrounding the downfall of Meech Lake and the Oka crisis from a very personal perspective.
