“The most profound truth in the universe is this: that we are all one drum and we need each other.” —Richard Wagamese, One Drum

Fans of Richard Wagamese’s writing will be heartened by the news that the bestselling author left behind a manuscript he’d been working on until shortly before his death in 2017. One Drum welcomes readers to unite in ceremony to heal themselves and bring harmony to their lives and communities.
