Nature Power: In the Spirit of an Okanagan Storyteller

Many of the stories in Harry Robinson's second collection feature the shoo-MISH, or "nature helpers" that assist humans and sometimes provide them with special powers. Some tell of individuals who use these powers to heal themselves; others tell of Indian doctors who have been given the power to heal others. Still others tell of power encounters: a woman "comes alive" after death; a boy meets a singing squirrel; a voice from nowhere predicts the future.

BC Book Prize Winner, 1993.

Epic, mesmerizing tales by a great Okanagan storyteller that lift [one] eerily and movingly into a different world.
