When her father died, Rosalie Iron Wing was taken from her extended family and placed into foster care, as so many Indigenous children were. She was twelve. Now, after her husband’s death, she returns to the cabin where she’d spent her childhood, seeking to understand her past. Her story is interwoven with those of others, giving us historical context and multiple points of view, and it is seeds that connect them all. Beautifully and evocatively written, The Seed Keeper challenges us to think about our relationship to the land and to the plants that sustain us. — Joan (RBB Staff)
