Short stories about Natives and the storytelling culture. Each chapter begins with the same basic story (minor details changed) which conveys the idea that you are following the narrator through several speaking engagements with different audiences. It also conveys the message that people are predictable in their responses to stories. I didn't look much closer than that at the meaning or themes to the book, but it would be interesting to really contemplate them with a group of readers.
Thomas King is a great storyteller and I always enjoy his books.… (lisätietoja)

#5 Thumps Dreadwater set in Chinook – in what is probably Montana, but never specified. In a previous story, Thumps’ girlfriend and her young daughter were killed by a serial killer while he was away at a police training session. He fled the California coast where it happened and when his car broke down in Chinook, somewhere in the American West, he stayed and became a photographer instead of a sheriff.

I was able to piece that together without having read any of the previous books, but I think this would be a great series to read in order.

ANYWAY, evidence points to that killer having come to Chinook. He was with a “movie crew” making a movie about the killer. The clues were fair and the plot complex without being convoluted.

Full of Native wisdom and humour.

" So far as Thumps could tell, the only things that did not get better with age and never became collectible, no matter how old they got, were people."
