This richly-textured first novel follows an Ojibways path from drifter to finding strength in Native roots and community.When Garnet Raven was three years old, he was taken from his home on an Ojibway reservation and placed in a series of foster homes. Having reached his mid-teens, he escapes at the first available opportunity, only to find himself cast adrift on the streets of the big city. At age 20, lonely, disillusioned- and in jail- Garnet suddenly receives a surprise letter from his long-lost native family. The sudden communication spurs an emotional homecoming. Released from jail, Garnet decides to stay on the reservation and in so doing discovers- for the first time- a sense of place and of self, through keeper, a friend of his grandfather. By turns mystical, humorous and poignant, KEEPERN ME casts a fresh and inspiring light on the redemptive powers of one's family and tratitions.
