"Richard Van Camp has gleaned the old in the new. He holds the endangered precious out, and shows us where it is kept." --Tantoo Cardinal
"Reading Van Camp's stories is like sitting around the kitchen table, sipping strong tea and listening to the aunties share some really good gossip. And, like that gossip, you need to pay attention because he is saying just as much in his silences as he is with his words." --Katherena Vermette
"Van Camp's keen ear for dialogue and lithe storytelling breathe hope and humour even into the darkest corners of human existence. His boldest, most compelling collection yet." --Eden Robinson
"Van Camp has an ear for crafting dialogue, an astuteness for chronicling humanity, and a knack for evoking laughter and horror in a single passage. Van Camp is an extraordinary writer...This book is a testament that his work should be required reading for both college courses and veracious bibliophiles who want to spend time lost in the words of a true master." -;a href="https: //tribalcollegejournal.org/the-best-native-books-of-2019/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Tribal College Journal: Journal of American Indian Higher Education, December 2019--Ryan Winn "Tribal College Journal: Journal of American Indian Higher Education "
