When Medicine River was published in 1990, the New York Times said of Thomas King, "He knows his territory. His first novel is economical, precise, and elegant." Now King returns with his totally fresh voice - carefully controlled, yet without artifice - to present a complex web of character, myth, folklore, and contemporary and universal experience. Green Grass, Running Water is the story of five Blackfoot Indians in the town of Blossom and its nearby reserve, whose

Truth & Bright Water by Thomas King( Book )

"This summer for Tecumseh and Lum, two young Native men coming of age, will be a summer of mysteries and returns. It opens with a distraught woman throwing things into the river out of a suitcase - then jumping in after. Tecumseh and Lum go to help, but she and her truck have disappeared. On the bluff overlooking the river, Tecumseh's dog discovers a child's skull. Other mysteries also puzzle Tecumseh - if his mom will take his dad back; if his rolling-stone Auntie Cassie is home to stay this time, and why she's brought a suitcase full of baby clothes; why no one protects Lum from his father's rages."

The inconvenient Indian : a curious account of native people in North America by Thomas King( file )
11 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 485 libraries worldwide
"The Inconvenient Indian is at once a "history" and the complete subversion of a history--in short, a critical and personal meditation that the remarkable Thomas King has conducted over the past 50 years about what it means to be "Indian" in North America. Rich with dark and light, pain and magic, this book distills the insights gleaned from that meditation, weaving the curiously circular tale of the relationship between non-Natives and Natives in the centuries since the two first encountered each other. In the process, King refashions old stories about historical events and figures, takes a sideways look at film and pop culture, relates his own complex experiences with activism, and articulates a deep and revolutionary understanding of the cumulative effects of ever-shifting laws and treaties on Native peoples and lands. This is a book both timeless and timely, burnished with anger but tempered by wit, and ultimately a hard-won offering of hope -- a sometimes inconvenient, but nonetheless indispensable account for all of us, Indian and non-Indian alike, seeking to understand how we might tell a new story for the future."--books.google

A short history of Indians in Canada : stories by Thomas King( Book )
14 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 305 libraries worldwide
"A flock of Indians has just flown smack into the side of a Bay Street skyscraper. Again. It's up to Bill and Rudy to tag the live ones, nurse them to health at the shelter and release them back into the wild. Thomas King is back in fabulous, fantastical form in this latest collection of short stories, some new, some previously published. Compiled in acomic tour de force, all of the selections in A Short History of Indians in Canada are showcases for King's wholly original brand of imagination and wit. In 20 tales, King pokes a sharp stick into the gears of the native myth-making machine, slyly exposing the raw underbelly of both historical and contemporary native-white relationships. Through the laughter, these stories shimmer brightly with the universal truths that unite us."--Amazon.ca Book Desc
