A Most Inviting Journey

C.J. Clark’s protagonist, a thirteen-year-old Ojibwa girl, sets off to find her dog, along the way meeting a remarkable cast of characters, some drawn from Native American and Norse myth. Whether friendly or antagonistic, they teach her to trust in herself. Encountering a stream that does not freeze, a place where time stands still, and other wonders, we are taken along with her to flights of imagination and wonder. Invoking a quote from Descartes: “If you would be a real seeker after the truth it is necessary that at least once in your life you doubt, as far as possible, all things.” C.J. Clark invites the reader to do the same. Fast paced, brimming with warmth and filled with twists and turns, this is a book you won’t want to put down.
