Chasing Painted Horses by Drew Hayden Taylor, Ojibwe, is the story of cold but happy Harry in spite of being destitute due to a negligent and schizophrenic society confused in its understanding of the relationship between Aboriginal peoples and everybody else, in a so-called just, multicultural society. But Harry had talents coming from an oral culture. Ralph from Otter Lake reserve but now a Toronto Police officer meets Harry in curious circumstances. Danielle from Otter Lake reserve, who drew the original Horse on the Everything Wall, goes missing. Through friendship and heartache the group of friends Danielle, Ralph, Shelley and William, face the challenges of trying to help Danielle through her - and eventually their including Harry's - interpretation of the Horse. Highly recommended.
