The author provides an inside look at the frightening environmental effects of the world’s largest industrial project on tiny Dene and Cree villages. The story is fictional but the themes are part of everyday life close to these huge strip mines.Tar and Feathers focuses on the struggles of aboriginal women attempting to protect their language, culture and health from world oil greed and the consuming power of modern industrialization. What sets Tar and Feathers apart is that the elements are interwoven on a more than superficial level- rather one which clearly indicates the authors working knowledge of the cultural challenges and intricacies of the relationships between the First Peoples and oil resource development. Tanners fist-hand experience is evident.Tar and Feathers is a great choice for those wanting an interesting read with an element of mystery, along with a look at the environmental issues of energy development set against the day to day background of a northern community.
