Description

NAT IONAL BESTSELLER • FINALIST FOR THE GOVERNOR GENERAL’S AWARD FOR FICTION • WINNER OF THE
CANADIAN AUTHORS’ AWARD FOR FICTION • AMONG THE BEST CANADIAN FICTION OF THE CENTURY (QUILL &
QUIRE) • A CBC CANADA READS FINALIST (2004)

Welcome to the town of Blossom—part myth, part hilariously off-kilter reality.Green Grass, Running Water is the story of five Blackfoot Indians whose existences connect in ways that are at once coincidental, comical and cosmic. This is a rich tale, weaving magical humour, revisionist history, nostalgia and myth into one bright whole.

Green Grass, Running Water’s timeless appeal has kept it flying off bookstore shelves since it was published in 1993. Enhanced with a P.S. section, this edition introduces a new generation of readers to King’s unique take on contemporary human experience.
