Part of the Picador Classic Series

I Heard the Owl Call My Name Synopsis

Mark Brian, a young Anglican priest who has not long to live, is sent to the Indian village of Kingcome in the wilds of British Columbia. While sharing the hunting and fishing, the festivals and funerals, the joys and sorrows of a once-proud tribe, Mark learns enough of life to be ready to die. On a cold winter evening when he hears the owl call his name, Mark understands what is to come ...An outstanding and much-acclaimed first novel. The author's perception, wisdom and insight give her unique story the quality of a legend or fable. A rare clarity and simplicity. It is a long time since I was so moved by a story, touching in its dignity and wise in its folklore' Daily Telegraph
