"This summer for Tecumseh and Lum, two young Native men coming of age, will be a summer of mysteries and returns. It opens with a distraught woman throwing things into the river out of a suitcase - then jumping in after. Tecumseh and Lum go to help, but she and her truck have disappeared. On the bluff overlooking the river, Tecumseh's dog discovers a child's skull. Other mysteries also puzzle Tecumseh - if his mom will take his dad back; if his rolling-stone Auntie Cassie is home to stay this time, and why she's brought a suitcase full of baby clothes; why no one protects Lum from his father's rages.".

Tom King is one of Canada's great writers and this novel is (in my opinion) his best!

Wow. This book is like reading the flow of a river. The dialogue and narrative drifts around stones, banks, and ripples intersect. A great read!

Summary

Add a Summary

Two young cousins, Tecumseh and Lum, live in Truth, a small American town, and Bright Water, the reserve across the border and over the river. Family is the only reason most of the people stay in the towns, and yet old secrets and new mysteries keep pulling the more nomadic residents back to the fold.
