A dictionary, a history, an elegy, an exorcism, a manual for recovery from abuse, both individual and ecological: The Yield can be read over and over for all its many layers. It’s the story of one woman’s homecoming that lays bare all the complex meanings and memories of home, especially for a First Nations woman in a settler state. Documenting the intimacies of colonial violation, it replies by rebuilding body, family, language and love through an auntie-led car trip, a feast, a protest, and a haunting reconnection. This is a book of ghosts asking you to listen.
