How does the bison hunt, a Western Canadian M tis tradition that's 150 years old, transform Jaimie's life in modern times? By exploring the M tis bison hunt of the Canadian Prairies, Jaimie discovers her voice and her path as a storyteller. Through the bison hunt, Jaimie begins to understand the richness of her culture as well as her own immense potential. Playful in its approach and rigorous in its research, this novel describes the traditional organization of the bison hunt extremely accurately while highlighting its vital importance in the social and economic fibre of the M tis people. Jaimie and the Bison Hunt deals with questions of identity, self-esteem and leadership. However it is first and foremost a work of fiction rich in adventure and imbued in human values.
