Outline

“Of All the Ways to die” is a book authored by Brenda Niskala, as a little ghost story that is offbeat, sweet and short. The story weaves the ordinary people’s lives together, teetering on the edges of hope with historical figures that are fascinating. The plot of the story shows how the author narrates her story. The author of the “Of All the Ways to Die” book takes readers into the long journeys of the underworld, the real living world of the Saskatchewan and the land of the dead. Urma in the book of “Of All the Ways to Die” holds for people the pot luck. These are the people she has lost in her entire life. Every individual brings their favorite recipes, a dish and their life stories and how they used to live, and how they died. Death comes to all people, and it does not matter the lifestyle, fame and fortune that one possessed in the true life.

Human compassion gets portrayed in the book, compounded by marvelous character collection and a marvelous prose of the analogy. The invitation from Urma attracts attention from acquaintances, loved ones and a few faces that are famous including that of the bog mummy, a Cree grandmother, St. Antony and the prairie ship builder who is eccentric (Niskala, 24). Is there a possibility that these people can help Urma in finding Eleen, the teenager who is missing?

Critical analysis

Niskala (44) attempts to show that the journey into the afterlife or death is not as easy and straightforward as people may imagine..............
