Through Black Spruce

by Joseph Boyden

Will Bird is a legendary Cree bush pilot, now lying comatose in a hospital in his hometown of Moose Factory, Ontario. His niece, Annie Bird, a beautiful loner whose sole interests up to now have been hunting and trapping, has just returned from her own perilous journey to sit beside his bed. Broken in different ways, the two take silent communion in their unspoken kinship, unfolding a story rife with fierce love, ancient blood feuds, mysterious disappearances, murders, and the bonds that hold a family, and a people together. From the rugged wilderness of northern Canada to the drug-fueled glamour of the Manhattan club scene, Boyden tracks his characters with a keen eye for detail and a rare empathy for the empty places concealed within the heart.
