"A Saturday Night book"
Summary, etc.:
A magical realism novel by Cherokee author Thomas King in which four Indian elders and the trickster Coyote change the lives of several individuals who come to the Blackfoot reservation for the Sun Dance.
"Strong, sassy women and hard-luck, hardheaded men, all searching for the middle ground between Native American tradition and the modern world, perform an elaborate dance of approach and avoidance in this magical, rollicking tale by Cherokee author, Thomas King. Alberta is a university professor who would like to trade her two boyfriends for a baby but no husband; Lionel is forty and still sells televisions for a patronizing boss; Eli and his log cabin stand in the way of a profitable dam project. These three -- and others -- are coming to the Blackfoot reservation for the Sun Dance, and there they will encounter four Indian elders and their companion, the trickster Coyote -- and nothing in the small town of Blossom will be the same again..."--Publisher.
