Storytelling has the capacity to address feelings and demonstrate themes – to illuminate beyond argument and theoretical exposition. In Otter’s Journey, Borrows makes use of the Anishinaabe tradition of storytelling to explore how the work in Indigenous language revitalization can inform the emerging field of Indigenous legal revitalization. She follows Otter, a dodem (clan) relation from the Chippewas of Nawash First Nation, on a journey across Anishinaabe, Inuit, Māori, Coast Salish, and Abenaki territories, through a narrative of Indigenous resurgence. In doing so, she reveals that the processes, philosophies, and practices flowing from Indigenous languages and laws can emerge from under the layers of colonial laws, policies, and languages to become guiding principles in people’s contemporary lives.

A dead campaigner. Two grieving families. A detective partnership who cannot quit. After a turbulent couple of years, private investigator Adam Park may have finally discovered a place to settle down and pursue his desire to help those less fortunate than himself: New Zealand, the Land of the Long White Cloud. A big part of his choice to quit traveling is his new partner: long-time friend Jess, who helps tame the dark impulses that have driven him in the past. But when a client dies just days after engaging the pair, both are curious. When it starts to look a lot like suicide, the client’s estranged widow begs them to delve deeper into the man’s past. And it is a past filled with desperate actions, fake identities, and paranoia. And that paranoia brought the dead man into conflict with a major corporation. When Adam and Jess latch onto the corporation’s activities in the small mountain town of Shelly Hill, they start to ask the same questions their client did: why is a subsidiary buying up land so quickly? Why are corporate executives working closely with a brutal drugs gang? And how far will they go to protect their interests? Under the Long White Cloud takes a man trying to change and puts his resolve to the test, pushing him to the very limits of his willpower, both emotionally and physically. For a fast paced international thriller in the beautiful setting of New Zealand, pick up the sixth Adam Park novel today. ____________________________________________________________ The full Adam Park private investigator series: 1.
