Summary
1919, and Niska, the last Cree medicine woman, has received word that one of the two boys she saw off to war has returned. She leaves her home to retrieve him, only to discover that the one she expected is actually the other. Xavier, her sole living relation, hovers somewhere between life and death. As Niska paddles him home, she realizes that all she can offer in her attempt to keep him alive is her words, the stories of her life. In turn, Xavier relates the horrifying years of war. He and his best friend, Elijah, prowled the battlefields as snipers of enormous skill. As their reputations grew, the two young men became both the pride and fear of their regiment as they stalked the ripe killing fields of Ypres and the Somme
Summary
The nephew of a Canadian Oji-Cree who is the last of a line of healers and diviners, Cree reserve student Xavier enlists in the military during World War I, a conflict throughout which he and his friend, Elijah, are marginalized for their appearances, their culturally enhanced marksmanship, and their disparate views of the war
