Book of the Month - Tsawalk: A Nuu-chah-nulth Worldview

If the recent fog around Clayoquot Sound has put you in a ruminating mood, maybe you'll be in the right state of mind to brood over the lines of Tsawalk.

Somehow Umeek E. Richard Atleo has woven together deep philosophy, anecdote, traditional story, contrasting and converging cosmologies into a relatively compact read. Don't let the size of the book fool you though, it's a 'read a page and reflect' type of volume. This is the sort of book one can read again and again, gleaning something new each time.

This book can be purchased at Mermaid Tales Bookshop or ordered through Vancouver Island Regional Library
