Medicine Walk by Richard Wagamese
When sixteen-year-old Franklin Starlight is called to visit his estranged father, Eldon, he finds him decimated after years of drinking. What ensues is a difficult journey through the rugged and starkly beautiful back-country of the B.C Interior and a vivid journey together into the past. Eldon relates to frank the desolate moments in his life, and the times as well of happiness and hope, and he tells of sacrifices made in the name of love. In doing so, he offers his son a world the boy has never seen, a history he has never known. Richard Wagamese’s insight and compassion are matched by his remarkable gifts of storytelling and his ability to create characters that will live in our hearts long after the last page has turned.
