Places and stories hold important meanings for families of all kinds, and are especially special in Indigenous cultures. Meet multi-award-winning young people’s author David A. Robertson, as he introduces you to a boy and his Moshom (grandfather), as they embark on an important northern journey in On the Trapline. Along the way, the boy will find himself imagining what life was like two generations ago – a life that appears to be both different from and similar to his life now. This heartfelt story about memory, imagination and intergenerational connection, from the 2021 Freedom to Read Award-winner, is sure to capture your sense of wonder.
