» More information

Richard Wagamese, from the Wabaseemoong First Nation in Northwestern Ontario, now lives in Kamloops, BC. He was 22 years old when his Ojibway elders declared that he had “stories in the curls of his fingers.” He has published seven novels, five non-fiction titles, and one poetry collection. His sixth novel, Indian Horse, was the People’s Choice Award in the 2013 CBC Canada Reads competition. His most recent novel, Medicine Walk, was published in the past year. “Indian Horse finds the granite solidity of Wagamese’s prose polished to a lustrous sheen; brisk, brief, sharp chapters propel the reader forward. He seamlessly braids together his two traditions: English literary and aboriginal oral.” Donna Bailey Nurse “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.” Natalee Caple
