    Wow!

    Set in a catastrophic future, indigenous peoples find they are the only ones left who can dream. Others hunt them to harvest those dreams. This adventure follows a small group of indigenous youth and elders as they seek safety in the north. Their personal growth leads to overall gain but not without painful loss.

    The Marrow Thieves

    Such an amazing read. Once I started reading I just couldn’t put this book down. It’s most definitely a page turned and it kept me sitting on the edge of my seat with a need to know what was going to happen next.

    Bad idea, no ending, whites are bad

    Another post apocolypse story set in middle of the millenium but this one is based on the ridiculous idea that dreams are somehow stored in bone marrow and only in persons who have descended from a variety of "indiginous" populations. White people hunt, torture and kill these innocent native descendents to extract their bone marrow in "schools" built soley for that purpose in order to gain dreams. The explanation of the dream transferring process is lacking and left up to the reader to "dream" up how this all works. After forcing myself to read through to the ending, there was no ending! Leaves you with nothing but a bitter taste in your mouth.

    Thought provoking look at a culture in crisis

    This book offers insight into a culture in crisis. It takes place in the future and explores the decline of a way of life unlike anything I have read. The prose is beautiful. We experience the story through the main character, a Metis teenager named Francis, or Frenchy. He is on a journey to claim back the traditional ways with a group of people of different ages and indigenous cultures. I highly recommend going on this journey with him to get an understanding of what it means to lose a way of life at the hands of another society that think their ways are best.

    The Marrow Thieves

    I was halfway through this book when all the symbolism made itself clear and hit me like a ton of bricks. It moved me. I need to read it again, and soon.
