Rated 5 out of 5 by from Joseph Boyden does it again! I always enjoyed Joseph Boyden books and although I don't like short stories, I loved Born With a Tooth. Boyden takes each story which can certainly stand on its own and weaves it in with the others so by the end of the book, you feel like you've read a novel. He brings forth serious issues that plague Native Canadians and the realities that come forward. Brilliantly written, I couldn't put this book down.
