A short history of Indians in Canada : stories

"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
