C.J. Clark gradually moves us from the far north in 1957 into a legendary, magical world through an Ojibwa Indian girl’s search for her dog DeeOgee. Excitement grips us through every twist and turn until months later, Sam wakes up battered and bruised on the front porch of a friend’s house in Green Earth. What was real? What were the dreams caused by her injuries? To find DeeOgee, she had to return to the other side of Crooked Hills.
