With an introduction by author Cynan Jones

When Mark Brian, a young priest, is sent to the Indian village of Kingcome in British Columbia, he finds himself in an astonishing place of salmon runs and ancient totems. Yet amidst the beauty, the old culture is under attack, slowly being replaced by prefab houses and alcoholism. Mark has not long to live, and so he sets about sharing the hunting and fishing, the festivals and funerals, the joys and sorrows of a once proud tribe. Perhaps here he will learn enough of life to be ready to die.

With all the qualities of a legend or fable, I Heard the Owl Call My Name is a journey of discovery, and a story about the transforming power of love. Exploring the clash of old and new, it is an outstanding modern classic, both wise and tragic.

Review:

It is a long time since I was so moved by a story, touching in its dignity and wise in its folklore (Daily Telegraph)

An epic quality . . . an entrancing chemistry (New York Times)

Rare and beautiful . . . you'll never be the same again (Seattle Times)

Book Description:

A classic of Canadian literature and a vivid, moving story of the clash – and coming together – of cultures.
