Product Description

Review

One of the most touching, exuberant, cleverly crafted, and utterly entrancing plays. -- The Toronto Star, 1987

About the Author

Tomson Highway is one of the most distinctive playwrights to come along in years. His plays explore the contemporary Indian in dominant white society, and the results are both exciting and challenging. Highway was born on his father's trap-line in northern Canada. His father was a trapper, fisherman, and legendary dogsled racer. Trained as a concert pianist, Tomson turned to playwriting as a way to portray the lives and times of Native people. His award-winning plays have been produced throughout the United States and Canada and around the world, and his works are studied extensively at universities everywhere. Also by Tomson Highway, Dry Lips Oughta Move to Kapuskasing (ISBN 0920079555).

Format: Paperback
I really enjoyed this play. It had very humourous parts, and also provided a unique insight into the Native-Canadian reserves lifestyle. The women are depicted in a very unique style, and are very funny, and life-like. While reading this play, I quite often felt as though I were playing one of the characters myself. I had to read this for school, and I am glad, because it was very touching, and also a good learning experience, learning about other cultures in Canada.

Format: Paperback
This was a really dramatic play that expressed many issues that many people would never talk about in a book. It dealt with rape, death and solidarity among Native women. When it was assigned in my first year English class, I was not sure what to think before I read it. After I read it I found that it was one of the best plays that I have ever read and gives new insight into the Native culture in Canada.

Very misleading, didn't say that it was in Cree as I was looking for the English version. My academics suffered because I couldn't get the right book on time. It should say the language in a more obvious way so that people don't make the same mistake.
