Description

Truth and Bright Water is an interesting novel by Thomas King about two youths living along the Montana - Alberta border. The small American town is called Truth; and the reserve just across the border is called Bright Water. Cousin Lum tries desperately to wint the Indian Days race and so move away from his abusive parent. Cousin Tesumseh also attempts to understand his family. The easy to read style contains themes of love, betrayal, reconciliation, self-discovery and the search for meaning. Although there are mature theme references, senior high school students will see life reflected in the novel in terms of sexual acitivity, suicide, environmental issues, authority and corporal punishment. This novel is an authorized student support resource for Alberta Education grade 10, 11, and 12 English Language Arts. Novel Guide: http://files.harpercollins.com/PDF/ReadingGuides/0006481965.pdf
