This is a book for all who are interested in healing historical wounds of racism, stolen land, and cultural exploitation. Essays on land use, creation, history, and faith appear among poems and reflections by people across ethnic and religious divides. The writers do not always agree in fact, some are bound to raise readers' defenses. But they represent the hard truths that we must hear before reconciliation can come.
The presentation of Buffalo Shouts, Salmon Cry will be made by one of the book's contributing authors, Dr. Steve Berry. A local resident of Manchester, Berry resigned in late 2009 as the Senior Minister of the First Congregational Church of Manchester and in early 2010 began a writing project with theologian Walter Wink, which was completed this past spring.
Berry is a sought after speaker and lecturer. He is completing a book on Competition and Rivalry versus Care and Community and is currently in discussion with best selling author/storyteller/futurist Ryan Mathews on a new book project.
His talk will be given at The Northshire bookstore on Thursday, Sept.
