“With Legacy, Waubgeshig Rice places himself squarely at the front of the next wave of Native authors. Bold, envisioned storytelling. A hands down pleasure to read. “

– Richard Wagamese

In the winter of 1989, Eva Gibson is a university student living in downtown Toronto.

She’s homesick and anxious to finish her education and return home to serve her Anishinaabe community.

“No matter what happens in your pursuit of a career in journalism, you’ll always have your community. That includes your home people and your circle of fellow Indigenous journalists. We’ll have your back, as those who came before us had ours.

That’s what kept me going for eighteen years.”
