Reviews

Praise for Medicine Walk

"Wagamese has penned a complex, rugged, and moving father-son novel. His muscular prose and spare tone complement this gem of a narrative.".--Publishers Weekly [STARRED review]

"Wagamese is a keen observer, sketching places ("stars in the thick purple swaddle of the sky") or people ("He leaned when he walked, canted at a hard angle to the right as though gravity worked with different properties on him") elegantly, economically, all while gracefully employing literary insight to deftly dissect blood ties lingering in fractured families. A powerful novel of hard men in hard country reminiscent of Jim Harrison's Legends of the Fall.--Kirkus

"Richard Wagamese is a born storyteller."
--Louise Erdrich

"Richard Wagamese has become a master. This brilliant novel (Medicine Walk) is his heart song, his crowning achievement thus far."
--Joseph Boyden

"A deeply felt and profoundly moving novel, written in the kind of sure, clear prose that brings to mind the work of the great North American masters like Steinbeck. But Wagamese's voice and vision are also completely his own, as is the important and powerful story he has to tell."
--Jane Urquhart

"Medicine Walk is a masterpiece, a work of art that explores human interconnectedness with a level of artistry so superb that the personal becomes eternal."
--National Post

"This is very much a novel about the role of stories in our lives, those we tell ourselves about ourselves and those we agree to live by . . . Wagamese understands that the stories we don't tell are as important as the ones we do . . . But Medicine Walk is also testament to the redemptive power of love and compassion."
--Globe and Mail
