"Shaman's Ground continues the story of Lily Fairchild begun in St. Vitus Dance, tracing the rich details of her life from1878 to 1922 in and around the new village of Point Edward on the shores o f Lake Huron. Once again the tumult of her personal life is set against, and influenced by, the great historical events of the period: economic depression, devastating epidemic, the Second Riel Rebellion, the building of the St. Clair Tunnel, and the killing grounds of Flanders and the Somme. Through her sons and a series of lovers - Lucien the locomotive man, Arthur the West Coast vaudevillian, and the mysterious recluse of the Queen's Hotel - Lily's life reaches out to touch the board rooms of Bay Street and the literary salons of Imperial London, where Whistler and Wilde keep androgynous company. Part fable and part documentary, Shaman's Ground is ultimately aboutsurvival and loss, about aging and the changes it brings, about memory its elf and that elusive 'magic ground' we long to call 'home'." - from rear cover.
