Description

Bjorn is a child of First Nations origin, adopted into a white family, who sets out to explore his roots and grows radicalized through exposure to the historical ordeals of First Nations peoples. From an early age he feels emotionally drawn to bears and the cryptic messages he believes they offer him. Gradually they come to represent to him the wisdom of Nature and environmental preservation. Bjorn grows determined to confront the recklessness of corporate plans to send supertankers through the treacherous channels of the Great Bear Rainforest. Circumstances bring him in close proximity to the chief operating officer of the pipeline and tanker corporation. Bjorn is confronted with a moral dilemma about how to use his relationship with the COO in a situation of growing psychological tension that ends in deadly confrontation. The novel reflects First Nations experience and lore, the mythical relevance of ancient bear worship in Russia and a cosmic vision of the place of bears in the world. A riveting tale of the environment, bears, a search for identity, and eco-violence.
