Moon of the Turning Leaves by Waubgeshig Rice is the #1 Canadian fiction book this week.

Moon of the Turning Leaves takes place 10 years after the events of the post-apocalyptic novel Moon of the Crusted Snow and depicts an epic journey to a forgotten homeland. With food supplies dwindling, Evan Whitesky and his band of survivors  need to find a new home. Evan volunteers to lead  a group — including his daughter Nangohns and a great archer and hunter — to their ancestral home, the “land where the birch trees grow by the big water.” Along the way, they come across other survivors — not all of whom can be trusted.
