At age 17, Duncan McCue spent five months in a hunting cabin with a James Bay Cree family. His coming-of-age memoir of those days is frank, funny and evocative. Its also a beautiful sketch of the landscape and culture of the Cree- a nation still recovering from massive hydroelectric projects that flooded over 11,000 square kilometres of their traditional territory.

His story deftly entwines the challenges of identity for First Nations youth, the sexual frustration and hopeful confusion of the teenage years, and the realities of living in an enduring state of culture shock.

About the Author:

Duncan McCues current affairs reportage is featured on CBCs The National. He is Anishinaabe, a member of the Chippewas of Georgina Island First Nation in southern Ontario, and lives with his wife and two children in Vancouver. This is his first book.
