Suddenly They Heard Footsteps reflects my experience as a Canadian storyteller, but I hope it is true to our common dream, fired by elders like Alice Kane and Ruth Sawyer, of making storytelling a living art for our times. The Way of the Storyteller was my literary inspiration. Becoming a storyteller fifty years after Sawyer, I have tried to show you the way of a storyteller who came of artistic age knowing his stories must have room in them for firebirds and microchips, for spirit quests and concentration camps.

As Dan Yashinsky, one of Canada’s most well-known and beloved storytellers shows, an old tradition has become the new avant-garde. Storytelling is still very much alive in this digital age: it connects us to each other, to our communities and to our past. In fact, people are as hungry as they've ever been for the wisdom and solace of told stories. By turns humorous, inspiring, instructive and philosophical, Dan shows us that, like love, stories mean the most the very moment we give them away.

Yashinsky gives a lot of good advice for budding storytellers and practical tools to use in crafting your stories. I love the book. I will say though that it has sparked some heated discussions about story telling and ethics in one class I am taking.

While correcting everyone else's typos and grammar, they have at least 97 that I saw while reading the book for the first time.

Dan Yashinsky,who has done as much as anyone to help the resurgence of storytelling in the last 30 years, has written a tender, beautifully crafted and amazingly informative book on the subject. Tracing his life's growing love of the craft, he shines light on the roles of the storyteller in society from the "storm fools" who brought news of the world to the isolated people of the arctic to the health worker, using stories to heal physical and psychic pain.

Last, but not least is the inclusion of some of Dan's most well-known tales, including the beloved story cycle, "The Storyteller at Fault."

For storytellers and story-lovers, "Suddenly We Heard Footsteps" ranks with Ruth Sawyer's "The Way of the Storyteller" and Joseph Sobel's "The Storyteller's Journey" as an entry to this ancient and always contemporary oral art.
