Black Water

David A. Robertson

A Governor General’s Award winning-author known for his writings about Indigenous Peoples in Canada, David A. Robertson now turns his focus to his own personal journey. Structured around a father-son trip to the northern trapline where Robertson and his father reclaim their connection to the land, Black Water shares yet another story: a young man seeking to understand his father’s life; to come to terms with his anxiety, and to finally piece together his own blood memory: the parts of his identity that are woven into the fabric of his DNA.
