about

In 1974, Paulette Jiles was sent by the CBC to work as a journalist in Big Trout Lake, a village in remote northern Ontario without radio or television. North Spirit is based on the seven years that Jiles spent working with the northern Cree and Ojibway peoples, who call themselves Anishinabe. Jiles explores the turning point of the Anishinabe, when new technology is beginning to clash with traditional culture. With the beautiful writing that Jiles is known for, North Spirit reveals the enduring legacy of northern mythology.
Paulette Jiles was born and raised in the Missouri Ozarks, and now has dual citizenship with Canada. Jiles has won awards for her poetry and fiction. Her first novel, Enemy Women (2002), was internationally acclaimed and won the Rogers Writers’ Trust Fiction Prize. She lives with her husband in San Antonio, Texas.

Editorial Reviews

North Spirit is a book full of riches -- riches of humour, riches of observation, conveyed in prose as clear and hard as the winter light of northern Ontario.” -- The Toronto Star

“Jiles is a writer of skill and apparently unending imagination. I simply could not put down this book.” -- Frances Itani, The Gazette (Montreal)
