From Dene artist and bioethicist Lisa Boivin comes this healing story of hope, dreams and the special bond between grandfather and granddaughter.

When a little girl dreams about a caribou, her grandfather explains how we connect with the knowledge of our ancestors through dreams. Caribou, Hawk, Bear and Wolf all have teachings to share to help us live a good life. But when Grampa gets sick and falls into a coma, the little girl must lean on his teachings as she learns to say goodbye.

Masterful prose and stunning collage weave a gentle story about life and death that will touch the hearts of children and adults alike.
