Fires of the Kindred

Told through the lives of two apprentice shamans...

Robin Skelton speculates on an alternate past, an ancestry that might have been or was, perhaps, forgotten. It is a revision of our origins, back to the roots of shamanism and the beginnings of mythology. True magic and harmony with nature undergo displacement by violent ambition and abstract thought, driving a wedge between the unity of Woman and Man. Told simply and sensitively through the lives of two apprentice shamans, themselves at the threshold of adulthood, the narrative draws us into a world where the ruling process is Change, where Humanity itself is losing its innocence and, for better or worse, is coming of age.

He was also a fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, a member of the Writers' Union of Canada, and editor of the Malahat Review for fifteen years.
