Ep 302 - I Heard the Owl Call My Name, by Margaret Craven

Margaret Craven's 1967 novel I Heard the Owl Call My Name is about a young Anglican vicar's work with a First Nations parish in British Columbia. The simplistic tale centers on the problems facing a culture at risk of disappearing and the work of those who fight to save it.

Talking points include white saviors, romanticized myths, and a run of tree puns that will leaf you breathless.
