Description

Call Me Hank: A Stó:lö Man's Reflections on Logging, Living, and Growing Old is the 2nd edition of the autobiography, Chiefly Indian, first published in 1972. The life and times of Hank Henry Pennier (1904-1991) as told in his own words is reissued with a new introduction which situates the book within the literature written by First Nations in Canada and includes a map and family photographs. He offers an intriguing look at the life of a non-status Indian who worked as a logger during the Great Depression. He comments on issues such as racism, identity, family life, and old age. His storytelling is filled with humour and poignancy as he writes about his life. This new edition is edited by Keith Thor Carlson and Kristina Fagan.
