Cree actor Billy Merasty's authentic inflection evokes the rhythm of Indigenous storytellers in this heart-stopping sequel to MOON OF THE CRUSTED SNOW (2018). The story begins 12 years after a catastrophic power grid failure forces a small group of First Nations people in northern Ontario to live off the land, following their Anishinaabe customs. As resources diminish, four members of the community, including leader Evan Whitesky and his teenage daughter, Nangohns, set off to find their ancestral home farther south. The intrepid seekers encounter all manner of danger. Merasty reflects the tension and intensity, along with conversations in Anishinaabemowin, the language of their people. Merasty manages it all with a skilled cadence and tone, delivering a first-rate listening experience. S.G. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2024]
