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 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.

I want to be Anishinaabe!

Loved how this story was told. I have so much more respect and understanding of this culture and it’s people. The teachings are what I want to follow in my own life. I am not of the same blood, but my heart believes in the same values, respect and love that these people believe in.

Lots of life lessons here.

I love Richard Wagamese's work. He is a skilled writer and story teller. This novel, although at times repetitive, was full of amazing life lessons. I tend to listen to books while I do chores but this novel kept stoping me from doing those things so I could pay more attention to the lessons on how to be a good human or as Keeper says, "a good Indian." Simple enough, comes down to that oldie but a goodie, treat others as you wish to be treated.
The narrator's voice (Keeper) can be a bit odd but you do get used to it.
I am going to listen to it again because I really want to hear those life lessons again.

Painful read

The narrator’s upspeak alone was enough to put me off, but combined with the repetition, excessive use of “on account of” in place of the word “because” & cheesy, improbable, unnatural conversations it was enough to make me quit with only 3 hours to go.

wonderful

I cried, I laughed, I learned
This book should be taught in Canadian schools and a movie made.
I took a star off because I feel some details of the main characters daily life were left out, unnecessarily given the honesty of the book overall

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.
