This book documents multi-disciplinary artist Terrance Houle's first major solo exhibition.

Houle's father grew up on the Sandy Bay Reservation in Manitoba and attended Residential School As well as learning the traditions of the Salteaux (Ojibway) First Nations People. Joining the Canadian Armed Forces at a time when Aboriginal men were rare in the service, he travelled around the world, writing to his mother weekly. Offering insight into a young Native man's journey and relationship with his Ojibway mother, this work speaks of home, connection, place, and time. The term Givn'r is particular to rural areas and means: To work tvery hard; to get wasted and rock as hard as possible; and to finish a job or task in an efficient and quick manner.
