Summary
Otter Lake is a sleepy Anishnawbe community where little happens. Until the day a handsome stranger pulls up astride a 1953 Indian Chief motorcycle - and turns Otter Lake completely upside down. Maggie, the Reserve's chief, is swept off her feet, but Virgil, her teenage son, is less than enchanted. Suspicious of the stranger's intentions, he teams up with his uncle Wayne - a master of aboriginal martial arts - to drive the stranger from the Reserve. And it turns out that the raccoons are willing to lend a hand
Summary
Exploring the cultural, political and cultural changes faced by the Objibway as they try to reconcile tradition with modern culture, the novel centers about Maggie, a 35-year-old widow and chief of the Otter Lake Native Reserve who falls in love with John, a mysterious white man who arrives in town.
