From the back of the book:
Alf Dumont walks between the two worlds of Indigenous and settler, traditional spirituality and Christianity. In "The Other Side of the River", he shares stories of building bridges between these worlds. Dumont challenges the church to re-examine the theology behind its past decisions around residential schools so that it might live out the words of its apologies. He challenges the country to re-examine its responsibilities and relationships with Indigenous people. Through stores, humour, poetry, and insight, Dumont encourages all people "to sit down together again" and share in a new way.
