MÉTIS is the first work of fiction by Dr Lynn Ponton, a child psychiatrist and psychoanalyst. Following the path of her numerous earlier articles and two books about adolescents and their struggles, she reminds the reader about the goodness of the individual and the interplay of genetics, culture, environment, and life circumstances that together form an individual’s personality and character. Adolescent experiences of 4 generations from 1868 through 1989 of a Métis family are elegantly depicted.
