In this second installation of the Overhead Series, Lucy Haché once again transports the reader with intimate revelations on identity by exploring both her personal and ancestral relationship to the sky and stars. Hache's prose is extraordinary in its combination of self awareness yet unselfconscious honesty and skillful restraint, creating a sense of connection under the vastness of the stars above. Masterfully illustrated by artist Michael Joyal, his evocative astronomic drawings contribute to the overall sensory and transcendent experience.

Lucy Haché, writer and adventurer of Kwakwaka'wakw/Métis and Scottish/Irish descent. She is a member of the Gwa'sala-'Nakwaxda'xw Nations, a Kwakwaka'wakw Community on the Northern tip of Vancouver Island, British Columbia. Much of her life has been spent in the forest or on the sea. When she's not surrounded by nature she writes about it. She also writes about contemporary and historical Indigenous issues.

"Indigenous People have always had a strong relationship with the sky. Here, Joyal's stark, beautiful illustrations combine perfectly with Haché's voice as she sings a story of loss, and ultimately, reclamation."
--David A. Robertson, author of When We Were Alone (winner 2017 Governor General's Literary Award) and Strangers
