Annotation

The story is set in a future Vancouver that has been returned to First Nation peoples, who are technologically advanced but tension remaining with Canadian authorities and can be seen as an emerging eutopia with problems. Much of the focus is on a new currency that, by being given away, gains “eminence” for the giver, which, in the society, is more important than the money.
