A Blackfoot/Dene author says his first novel has been more successful than he could have ever imagined.

The book, Secret of the Stars, made Amazon’s Top 10 best sellers in Native American literature.

APTN News caught up with Gitz Crazyboy at his first book signing in Calgary.

    I ordered three. Two to share and one for myself. Just opened the package and I
    can feel already that your book is a gift.
    In your acknowledgements you say, “My Beautiful indigenous culture…” That made me feel good. Made me smile.
    The more I learn of our indigenous culture and traditions, the more beauty I see.
    Thank-you for writing this important book…
