Description

'Stories are wondrous things', award-winning Canadian author and scholar Thomas King declares in his 2003 CBC Massey Lectures. 'And they are dangerous'.

Stories assert tremendous control over our lives, informing who we are and how we treat one another as friends, family and citizens. With keen perception and wit, king illustrates that stories are the key to, and the only hope for, human understanding. He compels us to listen well.
