Highly recommended. I'd somehow missed this book from one of my favourite authors when it first came out in 1989. It is both typical and atypical for a de Lint book. Typical are the wonderful characters that you love spending time with and getting to know. Typical too is the beautiful interweaving of First Nations beliefs and spirituality. Atypical is the SF / near-future setting. But de Lint makes it all work together perfectly, blending an exciting story with social commentary of where our consumer society and destruction of nature might lead us.
