Description

Borders is a graphic novel written by Thomas King of Cherokee, German and Greek descent, and illustrated by Natasha Donovan, Métis, whose Métis family are the Delarondes and the Morins from Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan. Borders is the masterfully told story of a boy and his mother whose road trip from Alberta to Salt Lake City is thwarted at the border when they identify their citizenship as Blackfoot. Refusing to identify as either American or Canadian first bars their entry into the US, and then their return into Canada. In the limbo between countries, they find power in their connection to their identity and to each other. This much-anthologized story has been adapted into a gripping graphic novel by award-winning artist Natasha Donovan. A beautifully told tale with broad appeal, Borders resonates deeply with themes of identity, justice, and belonging.
