I Heard the Owl Call My Name Paperback / softback

Part of the Picador Classic series

Description

With an introduction by author Cynan JonesWhen 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.
