A White baby arrives on the reserve in a cardboard box labelled “Rocky Creek First Nations.” Meanwhile, in Alberta, a Native couple is having trouble trying to adopt a child. Maybe they’ll have more luck at their community bingo night, where the contents of the package—plus a brand-new Ford pickup—will be top prize.

A Short History of Indians in Canada, Thomas King’s bestselling collection of twenty tales, is a comic tour de force, showcasing the author at his hilarious and provocative best. With his razor-sharp observations and mystical characters, including the ever-present and ever-changing Coyote, King pokes a sharp stick into the gears of the Native myth-making machine, exposing the underbelly of both historical and contemporary Native-White relationships. Through the laughter, these stories shimmer brightly with the universal truths that unite us.
