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.

From the Back Cover:

When four Native elders escape from a mental hospital and set out to fix the world, they get no further than Blossom, Alberta, home of the Dead Dog Café. Along the way, they meet Alberta, who would like to trade her two boyfriends for a baby; Lionel, who sells televisions for a patronizing boss; and Eli, whose log cabin stands in the way of a dam. In this magical, rollicking tale, the elders and their companion, the trickster Coyote, unleash a flood of stories. Blossom will never be the same.
