Many of the stories in Okanagan storyteller Harry Robinsons second collection feature the shoo-MISH, or nature helpers that assist humans and sometimes provide them with special powers. Some tell of individuals who use these powers to heal themselves; others tell of Indian doctors with the power to heal others. Still others tell of power encounters of various kinds.
