Description

Set along the Pacific Northwest Coast in the 1950s, Ravensong: A Novel tells the story of an urban Indigenous community devastated by an influenza epidemic. Stacey, a 17-year-old First Nation, struggles with the clash between white society’s values and her family’s traditional ways, knowing that her future lies somewhere in between. Celia, her sister, has visions from the past, while Raven warns of an impending catastrophe before there is any reconciliation between the two cultures. In this passionate story about a young woman’s quest for answers, author Lee Maracle speaks unflinchingly of the gulf between two cultures: a gulf that Raven says must be bridged. Ravensong is a moving drama that includes elements of prophecy, mythology, cultural critique, and even humour. New and updated, this edition features a preface by Lee Maracle. First Published in 1993 and reprinted in 2011.
