Heather Robertson (au). In 1995, Robertson flew to Winnipeg to care for her father after he was told that he had terminal cancer. To her dismay, she realized that, in practical & emotional ways, she was totally unprepared for his death. She had dozens of questions & knew there were others she should be asking, but found no place to go to for answers. Robertson was shocked by the unpreparedness & unwillingness of the medical system to care for the dying & their families. After her father died, she embarked on a physical & imaginative journey through the world of the dying. This book not only looks at how the healthcare system deals with the dying, it also looks at the cultural meanings we give to death & the place we allow mortality in our lives.
