“Drew Hayden Taylor has a deft touch for mixing comedy and commentary in an entertaining and all-Canadian form of social satire." Vancouver Sun

Bobby Rabbit has unfinished business with Canada’s first prime minister. His grandfather’s medicine bundle lies mouldering in a British museum, another casualty of the residential school system. So Bobby enlists the help of his friend Hugh, a rockstar wannabe, and Anya, a Queen’s University dropout, to secure a bargaining chip... and to execute a heist so epic in scale they might never see the light of day again.
Filled with humour and sorrow, this bittersweet sesquicentennial story is about finding life’s purpose, knowing when to hang on, and when to change direction.
