Product description

Review

Joseph Boyden's novel is, simply, beautiful: you will lose yourself in the richness of its prose and the ever-deepening puzzles it inveigles you into. THROUGH BLACK SPRUCE is fluent, involving fiction, and as good an advertisement as any for unforgiving wilderness living. (Tim Teeman THE TIMES)

This complex and interesting novel is all about strong family bonds. (HOT STARS)

a remarkable view into a lost world dismantled so brutally by the white 'wemestikushu'... Boyden guides us through customs, mythologies and rituals that attend life in the bush. (TLS)

mesmerising. In the wild, dreams are prophetic and spiritual truths revealed... his characters are most moving when revelations occur in small, quite moments. (Julie Wheelwright THE INDEPENDENT)

It is a powerful novel of place and the ties that bind families... A fine achievement, Through Black Spruce is extraordinary. (IRISH EXAMINER)

love, betrayal and loss in the wild and frozen Canadian wilderness. A strangely haunting read. (CHOICE)

Alternating between life at its most elemental and most decadent, Boyden's tale skilfully reflects the Indians' struggle to embrace modern society. (Anthony Gardner MAIL ON SUNDAY) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
