David weaves an engrossing and unforgettable story with the precision of a historian and the colour of a true Indigenous storyteller.

-- "Rosanna Deerchild, author of "This Is a Small Northern Town""

Healing lies in knowing our past, not just of our lives, but also the distant past of our ancestors. The interweaving movements from present to past and past to present are like waves of cleansing waters washing in to the present, and back out to that distant past. It's mesmerizing.

-- "Beatrice Mosionier, author of "In Search of April Raintree""
