In a world without time and steeped in ceremony and magic, walks a chosen few who hold an ancient power: the Grey Eyes. True stewards of the land, the Grey Eyes use their magic to maintain harmony and keep evil at bay. With only one elderly Grey-Eye left in the village of the Nehiyawak, the birth of a new Grey-Eyed boy promises a renewed line of defence against their only foe: the menacing Red-Eyes, whose name is rarely spoken but whose presence is ever felt. While the birth of the Grey-Eyed boy offers the clan much-needed protection, it also initiates a struggle for power that threatens to rip the clan apart, leaving them defenceless against the their sworn ememy. The responsibility of restoring balance and harmony, the only way to keep the Nehiyawak safe, is thrust upon a boy s slender shoulders. What powers will he have, and can he protect the clan from the evil of the Red Eyes?

Busch's novel brings to life the culture and traditions of his people in a pre-colonial context. The story is engaging but I especially appreciated reading about how the traditions shaped the lives of the people. All Canadians should read this book (and others by First Nations and aboriginal authors) to help us move toward a culture based on equality and respect.
