"What the Crow Said tells the exuberant, ribald, elemental tale of the citizens of a town somewhere on the weather-beaten border between Alberta and Saskatchewan." "After Vera Lang consorts with a swarm of bees, something changes in Big Indian. This prairie municipality - so remote from the rest of the world that its citizens aren't sure which province they live in - becomes somehow locked inside its own world of patience, yearning and willful struggle with nature." "Along the way, Big Indian emerges as a place simultaneously in the past and the present, the real and the imaginary, where a game of cards might last forever and a defeated farmer can freeze on his snowbound plow in June."--Jacket
