A wonderful historical account of a vibrant but changing community in north-west coastal Canada through the eyes of the community and a young priest. I re-read it recently and was inspired again. Some years ago the story teased me into visiting displays in a Vancouver University and the First Nation Museum in Quebec. Magnificent!

A Walk Through Memory22 January 2018 - Published on Amazon.com
I read this as a young woman, caught between two cultures. I am old now and at peace with them. This book was my introduction as to how it might be done. When the owl calls my name I shall be unafraid. I will know that I have lived long enough to be ready to die. This is wonderful and beautiful, triumphant and tragic, and it is the way of all flesh. Read this. Do not be afraid. In it is life and rejoicing. Live fully and the end will not matter much to you, but it will sing of life to all those you leave behind, and ease their going after you, as they must. You will have peace and always be free, no matter how others live uneasy in the prison of fear. It is good to live. It will be no great thing to die.

This story has played a significant part in my life ...12 March 2017 - Published on Amazon.com
This story has played a significant part in my life since I was in my late 20' or early 30's. It has taught me so much about life and the town and Indian Village depicted in this story is the absolute only thing in my bucket list now at the age of 68. I have been called to revisit this poignant life story 3 different times in my life. My son is a budding artist who loves to write for children. His first book has been written but as an artist and a writer, he has not finished illustrating. Surprisingly, it is about an owl. I had never shared my experience with "I Heard the Owl....". I have now and I have requested he both read the book and watch the movie. I pray that he will.

One of the BEST!20 February 2018 - Published on Amazon.com
As I grow older and closer to "hearing the Owl call my Name" this old favorite book has become even more significant to me, Yes, I cried towards the end but it was a release and I felt better afterwards. Such wonderful characters in the Native village and my heart frequently tightened due to their struggles of trying to belong to two worlds. I wish there had been followup stories as this is masterful storytelling!

Excellent story- a life changet5 August 2015 - Published on Amazon.com
A counselor friend of mine passed this book to me a couple of years ago. It quickly became one of my favorite little books. My well-worn paperback edition has become dog-eared through the years so I was happy to find it on Amazon. My friend gave the book to me because I am a pastor- and he felt it would both inspire me and help me remember what really matters in life. He was right in both cases. If you deal with people in a ministry or counseling environment, you need to read this book. Beware, it is not a quick read- the cultural concepts shared take some time to digest. Beware also that you will shed a tear or two. I don't know a thing about Margaret Craven but I do know she struck a cord with me (and many others) when she penned this story. Do yourself a favor and curl up with this book. It will be well worth your time, and who knows, it just might change your life.

Review of I Heard the Owl Call My Name27 January 2017 - Published on Amazon.com
Wonderful story about an Anglican priest who goes to the Pacific Northwest in the 19th century, to convert the Natives who lived on the coast. It is a conversion, but not of the natives. The priest learns a great deal about humanity. I highly recommend this story to everyone who loves to read. It is a real jewel written by Margaret Craven.
