Novel hailed as a rich and exciting read

US book blogger describes White Bird Black as a epic novel about the rights of native Canadians and their struggle with oil and gas development

Jim Bashkin's blog nearlynothingbutnovels.blogspot,com/ has an international reputation for being a prime source of information about recently released works of fiction.

An important guide especially among the academic community where Baskin works as a research chemist, his blog is used as a reference to gain some relaxation from the stress of working in the lab.

In his latest posting dated September 27,2009 Baskin reviews the Arctic Novel White Bird Black Bird.

In his review Baskin comments that :

" while the rights of indigenuous peoples have now been established to some extent in various countries, this was not the case during the tumuluous, initial development of energy resources in the Canadian north. In fact it was only in 2007 that the United Nations adopted its Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous People."

Baskin goes on to say:

" For such an important story in a relatively unknown time and place, we are lucky to have Val Wake's insider knowledge as the basis of his book."

Baksin concludes by saying:

" Those with an interest in human rights, the right of the indigenous peoples, the politics and busienss of exploiting energy resources, or one of the little-known stories of North American development, will see that White Bird Black Brid provides the goods. The novel also offers a rich and exciting read for fiction lovers everywhere."
