Billy Tinker
 

ISBN: 978-1-894345-33-0


This is a gritty tale detailing the hardships faced by labourers (once known as “packsack miners”) in Northern Saskatchewan mining camps.

Billy Tinker offers a rare combination of realism and magic that draws out many of the contradictions and tests faced by Native Canadians and the working class. Billy’s anger and the loneliness of his itinerant lifestyle are transformed by a sweat lodge ceremony, and the “little people” through whom he renews his connections to the land and his culture.
