Jimmy Bluefeather by Kim Heacox
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Beautiful, beautiful nature writing that makes me miss Alaska. Keb Wisting is a Norwegian/Tlingit/Alaskan man who has lived one heck of a life. Now his grandson has been injured in a logging accident that ruins his dreams of playing professional basketball. The two of them (and some friends) set off in a canoe that they built to find life's meaning.
Silly summary, but this is a deep book about family, living, dying, forgiveness, and all things good in life. This is one that they will be selling in Alaskan bookstores for a long, long time.
If you like travel memoirs or anything about the importance of place, give this novel a try.
