But hearing or even understanding information doesn't ease the fear. For that we have to understand our own hearts.

This is a memoir of the author's season living in the deep Canadian bush, hunting and trapping. The story is well-written and engaging, and it alone would make this book worth your time. But this book is something more, too. The author is Anishinaabe, a member of the Chippewas of Georgina Island First Nation in southern Ontario, and his time in the bush is spent with a James Bay Cree family. He weaves a discussion of the challenges facing First Nations youths and communities into the narrative, and uses his experiences to provide insight into these issues, which makes this a book you may find yourself thinking about long after you've finished it.
