Summary, etc.: One Native Life is a look back down the road Wagamese has travelled. It's about the things he's learned as a human being, a man and an Ojibway in his fifty-two years on the planet. Whether he's writing about making bannock, playing baseball, listening to the wind, meeting Johnny Cash or running away with the circus, these are stories told in a healing spirit. This is a book about roots: uncovering them, tending them, watching life spring up all around you. It is also a book about Canada. Acceptance is an Aboriginal principle, and Wagamese has come to see that we are all neighbours here. Once we understand that, he says, we realize it's all one great, grand tale.
