Abstract:

Based on historical events, Siggins creates a fictional version of the real-life Pelican Narrows, weaving a colourful tale resplendent with its own cavalcade of dynamic, diverse characters whose stories play out against the backdrop of a visit from a condescending celebrity writer. The conflicts between Aboriginals and settlers, Protestants and Catholics, young and old, traditional and progressive, material and spiritual, all shape life in the little Northern community. Ever eloquent, Siggins proves herself more than capable of creating compelling, thought-provoking fiction with "Scattered Bones."
