Description

When Garnet Raven was three years old, he was taken from his home on an Ojibway Indian reserve and placed in a series of foster homes. Having reached his mid-teens, he escapes at the first available opportunity, only to find himself cast adrift on the streets of the big city.

Having skirted the urban underbelly once too often by age 20, he finds himself thrown in jail. While there, he gets a surprise letter from his long-forgotten native family.

The sudden communication from his past spurs him to return to the reserve following his release from jail. Deciding to stay awhile, his life is changed completely as he comes to discover his sense of place, and of self. While on the reserve, Garnet is initiated into the ways of the Ojibway - both ancient and modern - by Keeper, a friend of his grandfather, and last fount of history about his people's ways.

By turns funny, poignant and mystical, Keeper'n Me reflects a positive view of Native life and philosophy - as well as casting fresh light on the redemptive power of one's community and traditions.

Ce que les critiques en disent

"A fascinating read...I loved the revelations of a child taken away from the love of his family and put out to where his spirit was lost...Wagamese's book is about healing the lost soul" (Tantoo Cardinal)

Beautiful

Takes me back to the north where I grew up, the stories, the becoming human in a good way teachings are gently and gorgeously articulated. Loved the characters. I want to listen to it again.

one of my new favourites

Richard Wagamese is my favourite writer. This book is beautiful. It is full of knowledge and experience in rediscovery of self and culture. I'm blown away with a smile on my face and lots to think about from this for a long time yet. Thank you. I definitely recommend.

One of the greatest stories ive ever heard

Im not indigenous but i could relate to the character Garnett Raven in that i always felt the longing to find my home and my people. A place where i belong. A beautifully narrated and well written story whether your indigenous or not.

so so amazing!!!

This story is so emotional; so heartwarming; so funny at times. The narrators are the best too, especially Sam Bob's laughter. Dench'Cho puts so much feeling into the way he shares the story with us too.
This is my 7th Richard Wagamese's audio books that I've listened to!!!
His stories and autobiographies are all incredibly written; sharing the truth about the paths he was forced to travel growing up and how he found the strength to survive and return to his roots.

I couldn't love this book more

This book spoke to me on many levels. Its humour is infectious and the story is moving. You can see the power of Wagamese's voice developing here.

An important journey for everyone

I loved this book.

I read other reviews on goodreads, and people who thought this book was poor said things like, "there was no storyline" and that the "broken english" detracted from the story.

The storyline here is on the inside. If, like Keeper says, you like "shiny things," you may find this dull. It is a story of learning where you come from, who you are, your connections with others and place--it is a story of self-realization. In a sense, it is the most important story you will ever come across. It's not just Garnet's story--it's the story of Keeper, his mother, Jake, his community, and, if you are listening, you will find yourself in this story, whoever you are or wherever you come from. As Wagamese ends it, "we are all Indians."

I also loved the narration. It sounds like people I have met. I think I judged people who sounded like this in the past. After listening to the narration with accents, I feel a oneness with it. A Stoney Nakoda elder I met, taught a saying, "Wazin ĩeichninabi." It means, "I am one with you." It's a central teaching of this book, and if you take the time to listen, your life will be better for it.

If I could read only one book in my lifetime this would be it.

Ok, maybe it’s because I am Anishinaabe, but I think it’s more. This small book is like the Operator’s Manual on how to be a good being. This great read is wrapped in wisdom, humor and humility.
I sent Waganese’s book Embers to my friends. Now, I need to add this one to my list.
I’m getting ready to play it again. I want the many teachings to be the “fire” that warms my spirit.

An important story for everyone

I liked this entire book and all of the author's books I've read so far. I recommend this book to anyone who questions white america's culture and overall direction. We seem to take our freedom and technology for granted, but are wholly unaware of the cost in native, african, aboriginal and even our own lives. This story is awe inspiring- despite the incredible sadness, it is uplifting and hopeful.
