"A novel about the role of stories in our lives, those we tell ourselves about ourselves and those we agree to live by." -Globe and Mail When Franklin Starlight is called to visit his father, he has mixed emotions. Raised by the old man he was entrusted to soon after his birth, Frank is haunted by the brief and troubling moments he has shared with his father, Eldon. When he finally travels by horseback to town, he finds Eldon on the edge of death, decimated from years of drinking. The two undertake difficult journey into the mountainous backcountry, in search of a place for Eldon to die and be buried in the warrior way. As they travel, Eldon tells his son the story of his own life-from an impoverished childhood to combat in the Korean War and his shell-shocked return. Through the fog of pain, Eldon relates to his son these desolate moments, as well as his life's fleeting but nonetheless crucial moments of happiness and hope, the sacrifices made in the name of love. And in telling his story, Eldon offers his son a world the boy has never seen, a history he has never known"--… (més)

A well-written, engrossing, and evocative tale with the characters, settings, and moods vividly evident, but a bit more wordiness and similes than I needed to visualize the story.

Evocative to me, at least because I'm nigh on to that point, but I'd think engrossing and emotive to a larger audience. There is also the contrasting of characters for the pensive reader.

The story ... well you might say it's about the circumstances life throws at us and how in varying ways we get through them as we move on. Some things we never get over, and others are easier set aside. The gist of the story is as good or better than others along this line I've read, and the natural settings, realistic behaviors, and questioning appealed to me.

The story also exemplifies the value of listening and observing, as opposed to rattling on half baked, which in my younger days I was guilty of ;-)

“The old man always said people waste a lot air talkin’ about nothin’.” Seems to me a lot of writing mirrors that, but there is still some good, even needful, reading to be found such as this book. ( )

magnifique road movie d'un fils assistant à la mort lente de son père, dans une nature sauvage superbement décrite par l'auteur. ( )

I finished Medicine Walk a few days ago, but I simply could not sit and write a review. It left me raw and lost for words. I still don’t want to call this a review, but if I am writing here it is because I want to push this book on people everywhere.

This is the second book by Richard Wagamese that I read, the first being Indian Horse that I read a few years ago. Wagamese story telling power is extraordinary, he carries the reader on with a nuanced voice, revealing the depth of the story and its characters in layers. In both books, he writes about the experiences of being of 1st Nation heritage and the pain and consequences of living in a social order where you are stripped of your heritage. I hope that Waganese keeps on writing, as his voice and stories are very much needed.

Don't judge this book by how long it took me to read it. I had it out from the library on audio CD to listen to in the car on long trips. Then I renewed it. Then COVID hit North America and a) the library was closed until July and didn't want anything returned until then, and b) I made very few trips in the car (and even fewer long trips). So things moved along at a snails pace.
Which matches the book, to some extent. It's a slower paced, two plot-lines (then and now) kind of tale about a boy who doesn't know much about his origins and his memories of his father, and then the father's memories of his life, culminating into the present. It's about knowing you are and learning where you come from; it's about father/son, mother/son relationships. It's about the land. It's good, in that down-home, tough life kind of way. ( )

Another great story by Richard Wagamese. I loved the vividly detailed rendering of the characters and place, the farm and beautiful wilderness. It is as if you’re watching a film. I also loved the laconic and plain yet eloquent country speak (“plain says it plain around here”). I especially loved author’s understanding of human nature and his generous empathy. ❤️ ( )

Let the snake wait under
his weed
and the writing
be of words, slow and quick, sharp
to strike, quiet to wait, 
sleepless.
- through metaphor to reconcile
the people and the stones.

- William Carlos Williams, "A Sort of a Song"
